In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Natural sciences are a scientific branch that deals with observations, understanding and predictions of natural phenomena. It is a diverse field and includes disciplines such as biological science, physics, chemistry, Earth science and astronomy.

Build bright futures.
Students of every age must prepare to think deeply about solving the world’s most pressing problems — those at hand, and those of the future. They are tomorrow’s researchers, leaders, innovators, and educators. Unfortunately, too few teachers are prepared to teach the specific nuances of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
The Online Master of Education in STEM at William Woods is an interdisciplinary approach to teaching these concepts, with the purpose of removing barriers that separate these four disciplines, integrating them into real-world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences. Using the Next Generation Science Standards as a guide to comprehensive STEM education, specific principles and skills to be addressed as essential are:...
