SUMMARY

Studying Science Teacher Education is a valuable choice and ordinarily a necessary first step for pupils choosing to pursue a career as a science teacher trainer, a science tutor, or a scientist. Interestingly, science teacher education is a ​unique major being the 292nd most popular major. Last academic year, there were 435 science teacher education diplomas received. In-state tuition for science teacher education at private institutions is, on average, 2 times more pricey than their public rivals.

There are 256 colleges that offer science teacher education. 256 institutions is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you're looking to surround yourself with other science teacher education students, look at universities in Michigan which have more students admitted to science teacher education than any other state. More generally, the best region to study science teacher education is in the Great Lakes region with Central Michigan University, University of Michigan-Dearborn, and Kent State University at Kent best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in science teacher education is the Mid-American Conference with Central Michigan University, University of Akron Main Campus, and Kent State University at Kent representing the conference. From our comprehensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best university for science teacher education is University of Georgia.

The 'best' school does not have to be the best school for every student. There might be a bunch more perspectives to weigh when deciding on ​university. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could refashion your decision on which university to attend. Here at Authority, we weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which science teacher education school is home to the top campus, the answer is University of Central Florida. If you are very interested in which college is home to the best campus, then we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and our choice for the school with the best student life for science teacher education is University of Georgia. Curious why? Continue reading to find out more about our top recommendations. Some of our decisions might shock you.

If cost is a major influence in your decision on where to go to school, you might be cautious about Clemson University. Clemson University is our most expensive college for science teacher education, at least for out of state students. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive schools that might put the cost of Clemson University into perspective. Additionally, you could care to know that science teacher education is the 334th most expensive major in the nation, with an average cost of $20,900. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for science teacher education in the nation is South Carolina demonstrated by a tuition of $37,110 at Clemson University. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for science teacher education is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for science teacher education is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Montana State University with a cost of $23,890 and Western Governors University with a cost of $6,380. More optimistically, the most affordable college for science teacher education is Turtle Mountain Community College. Our full list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $10,200 for a degree in science teacher education. The price balloons somewhat to a median of $22,800 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the college with the best value for science teacher education: Clemson University. On this page you can find our comprehensive list on the schools we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this section is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for science teacher education majors can differ, but two years after leaving college students will often earn around $46,200. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; top positions can make up to $91,300. Straight out of college, the lowest end jobs within the science teacher education field make $23,100, which is an alright wage. The top earning graduates for science teacher education graduated from Clemson University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of science teacher education lies pretty bad, arriving in only the 3rd percentile of majors nationally. The school with the highest composite diversity for science teacher education is Western Governors University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Science Teacher Education major only ranks in the 99th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 3rd percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest share at 85% of students studying science teacher education. Additionally, 65% of undergraduates pursuing a science teacher education major are women.

The median ranking of science teacher education professors is 4.2 stars, a score that is 5% higher than the median score for every major; which is a good ranking. If you want to find the most popular science teacher education professor in the country, look no further than Nancy Jackson at New Jersey Institute of Technology. This may come as a surprise, but the highest rated instructors of science teacher education by student come from New Jersey Institute of Technology. If we incorporate data beyond simply rankings we find that the college possessing the best instructors for science teacher education is University of Nebraska-Lincoln. One can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the top instructors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for science teacher education is University of Central Florida. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we hope you understand that approaching the education process with a perspective primarily shaped by superlatives could cause issues. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on different universities and peruse some of Authority's insightful background pages on beneficial details to consider as you progress with your university search.
