Another source of educator grad credit in science
#1
The American Museum of Natural History has several online science topics that can be taken for grad credit at a number of universities. This page details additional costs and requirements for the credit.

We've discussed PBS Teacherline, Advanced Courses, and VESi here, but this one is a new one to me. I wonder if these come with education or science prefixes.

ohhhh yeah! That would be an AWESOME way to get that UL science credit!!
One of these days, I may go back and get a bachelor's in science - something biology related, but it's so expensive and hard to find that UL credit. I think cheap grad credit like this is the key, but there isn't much of it.

Learner stopped issuing grad credit, but they had 5 grad credits with SCIE prefix.

Advancement Courses has math and science courses with MTHX and SCIX prefixes when transcripted via Loyola Marymount. They are $449 for three credit graduate credits. There is currently a 20% off coupon SPRING20. That would make the courses $359.20. I am not sure of the end date for that code. That is $120 per graduate credit hour, which is good. I would advise staying away from courses that have teaching pedagogy components. For example, "Endangered Species and Mass Extinction Events" would be a better choice than "Teaching Science to Elementary Students."

With one of the providers, I know that TESU said that they wouldn't grant science credits because the classes were more about education than science. Some of these American Museum of Natural Science courses look promising because they have somewhat normal titles. Many of the science-related courses at Advancement Courses make it obvious that they're all about pedagogy.

That's cheap!

I noticed they had some new courses too.

First Masters complete. Working on another.
