The Environmental Studies Department is committed to examining, understanding, and addressing environmental challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective. This interdisciplinarity is found in our scholarship, teaching, and programming that bridge the natural and social sciences, and influences the ways in which we think about the causes of and solutions to complex, contemporary environmental issues. Crucial to this approach is a recognition that degradation of our planet and social injustice are intricately intertwined. Our faculty undertake environmental scholarship across diverse social, natural, and human-managed systems and built environments.
Science Education - Earth Sciences University of California - Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA
The science education major provides a broad introduction to the major fields of science, specialized coursework in two selected fields, and educational theory and practical work designed for future science teachers. The program is designed to prepare outstanding candidates to enter teaching credential programs after completion. Students earn a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree. They do not earn a teaching credential; this must be completed later.
The successful candidate will work closely with faculty members to study the efficacy of a new course designed to provide our diverse early career students with authentic research experiences in ecology and evolutionary biology. We seek a candidate with strong STEM education research experience. In addition to leading this project, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work closely with a variety of other science education and field teaching projects.
