Master of Education: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Education: Curriculum
The courses in the M. Ed. STEM Education program are listed below. Course descriptions can be found on another webpage. The program consists of 10 three credit graduate courses. Two courses are offered every semester for 5 semesters so as a busy professional you can earn this masters degree while you continue working.
You will enter the program with a cohort of students that take all 10 courses together over 21 months. Like you, your colleagues in the courses have a passion for educating children and improving their ability to teach the STEM disciplines. The community that is created through online text discussions, group assignments and sharing teaching strategies provides support as you pilot changes to your teaching. The courses invite you to share your experiences and teaching tips with classmates as you soak up the rich experiences others in class share with you.
The courses are designed to immerse you in the latest research and best practices for teaching early childhood, elementary and middle school children science, technology, engineering and math individually or through an integrated approach. You will read articles about STEM education, view online video, engage in online text discussions, complete assignments with children, experiment with STEM content and find the resources you need to become a more effective teacher. The overall goals of the program are to provide you with the tools to grow your ability to teach STEM disciplines AND to develop teacher leadership skills that will enable you to mentor colleagues, improve STEM curriculum/instruction and design high quality professional development experiences.
