Montana State University's online courses for science teachers are now open for fall registration. The courses are all part of MSU Extended University's National Teachers Enhancement Network.

Fall courses include biology, earth science, nutrition, soil science, microbiology, physics and other topics. The courses offer MSU graduate credits to practicing elementary, middle, high school and community college teachers. Each course is 100 percent Web-based. Courses offer between one and three MSU graduate credits, and most begin in September. Teachers do not have to be admitted to an MSU degree program in order to take the courses.

The National Teachers Enhancement Network was founded by MSU Extended University with support from the National Science Foundation. It is one of only six academic programs recognized by the National Science Teachers Association. Courses are designed to help science teachers develop a deeper understanding of science concepts while interacting with and learning new techniques from other teachers around the globe. Discounts are available to NSTA members.
