Science Teacher Preparation and Development in the Heart of Silicon Valley

The Science Education Program at San Jose State University is well positioned to meet the increasing demand for well-qualified and prepared science teachers in our community. Our program focuses on three aspects of science teacher education: recruitment and undergraduate experiences, pre-service training and preparation at the credential level, and professional development for in-service science educators. Our network of partners within SJSU and with school districts in the greater San Jose area ensures that our students receive essential hands-on training to fully prepare themselves for careers as science educators.
