Admission - EdS in Secondary Education (Science Certification)

Admission to the EdS program requires the following:

  • Master's level certification in secondary general science, secondary biology, secondary chemistry or secondary physics
  • Master's degree from an accredited institution
  • 3.0 GPA or higher in a completed graduate degree program
  • Minimum score of 300 on the GRE or 50th percentile on the MAT

A completed application package includes official test scores from all institutions attended, three letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose, official test scores, and a Graduate School application.

Applications are accepted each semester.

If the applicant did not receive a master's degree and certification in Alabama, the completion of this EdS degree will not provide Alabama AA (EdS) level certification. Those seeking licensure outside of Alabama must inquire with the certification agency in the state where EdS level certification is sought.

How do I apply?

If you reside or intend to seek professional licensure outside of the state of Alabama, please review the requirements for that state prior to applying to this program.
