This Master of Education STEM program will equip teachers to make STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) both appealing and broadly applicable in the classroom.
Prepare leaders to teach tomorrow’s engineers, scientists and technical experts, and through them, improve lives.
The M.Ed. in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is for students who want to become STEM specialists in a school and/or district. Through this program educators will learn how big ideas can interconnect to make learning both appealing and broadly applicable in the classroom. This 30 semester-hour program will teach and equip teachers with training and preparation for the STEM teaching field.
STEM teachers will be teaching tomorrow’s engineers, scientists and technical experts, and through them, improve lives. This program and the academic demands of the Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) seek to establish consistent education standards across the United States that ensure graduates from high schools are prepared to succeed in college or the workforce.
This program will engage and educate STEM teachers, so they may prepare their students to be think-ready, learn-ready and work-ready, therefore, ensuring student success. Integrating subjects such as mathematics and science has long been a concern in the education community. Through this program educators will learn how big ideas can become interconnected making learning both appealing and broadly applicable in the classroom. For example, engineering stresses problem solving; how to use mathematics and science in a project-based (PBL) context.
This 30 semester hour program with 12 semester hours of required core courses, 15 semester hours of required subject area courses and one (or two) suggested elective course(s) will teach and equip teachers with STEM training and preparation for the STEM teaching field.
