Online Master's Degree Program

TERC, in partnership with Lesley University, has developed an innovative degree program for K-8 educators that is: focused on inquiry, aligned with national science standards, and fully accredited.

Each course is team taught by a scientist and an educator. Program participants take all courses online, but much of their learning takes place away from the computer.

Science learning happens through hands-on investigations -- engaging participants in firsthand scientific inquiry. In the context of online study groups, participants report investigation findings, analyze, debate, and deepen science content understanding.

Our program provides a supportive space to rethink ideas about teaching. During each module participants examine case studies of inquiry in action, then try out new strategies in their own classrooms.
