Can I take the Master Education in Harvard Univeristy, when I have Environmental Engineering as my bachelor degree?
Hello, My name is Nabila. I am in USA now to attend a student exchange program. I really love both environment and education fields. My big goal is to work in the United Nations someday. education college environment engineering environmental-engineering
First – I know my answer is longer than usual, but I thought some added context would help you focus your questions so that the responses you find will also be more focused. Good Luck!

An easy way to get answers to your questions is to contact someone in the School of Education at Harvard, and talk/communicate to/with that person. Another easy way is to go to their website. (https://www.gse.harvard.edu/degree-programs)
You might also check out the entrance requirements for their Master’s Program, and I’m sure there is a list of the courses you’d be required to take.
Many universities have adopted a program called the “Fifth-year Master’s in Education.” In the four years of undergraduate study, you specialize in a content area, such as Environmental Engineering, Chemistry, or Art. In the Master’s program, your undergraduate content area provides the context for your study to become a teacher – Environmental Education, Chemistry Education, Art Education, etc.
Departments within the School of Education will offer teaching strategies and practices best suited for clusters of content areas. Teaching science is very different from teaching Art or teaching Physical Education, so different instructional strategies are learned to maximize each student’s progress – in that area. One size does not fit all – I learned a lot about how to be a better science teacher, but teaching reading was always a struggle for me because the subjects are so different.
