Students in our M.S.Ed. programs successfully publish in peer-reviewed journals. Often these publications grow out of manuscripts students produce for their projects in the capstone course of the program (PHY690). Even if PHY690 manuscripts do not result in external publication, they are archived at http://physicsed.buffalostate.edu/pubs/PHY690/.
