Program

The Mathematics and Science Education Doctoral Program (MSED) is administered jointly by the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and San Diego State University (SDSU). In this program, students with a baccalaureate and master's degree in mathematics, biology, chemistry, or physics complement their discipline knowledge with studies of how people learn mathematics and science. MSED offers a supportive environment where students pursue their own research interests while working closely with faculty on both campuses. The interdisciplinary course requirements (including courses in cognitive science and philosophy) strike a balance between theoretical and practical classes, including a teaching practicum. MSED graduates have secured faculty positions at institutions like the University of Colorado, Brigham Young University, and the University of Wisconsin.
