Many teachers and administrators have rich understandings of teaching strategy and content, but have had little opportunity to explore theoretical or conceptual knowledge of how students learn.

Further, students will have the opportunity to study important issues in educational policy. These opportunities will explore past and modern conceptions of school reform.
Better understanding of how (and why) students learn in classrooms can lead to more focused and more effective instruction.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
