Online STEM Endorsement Program

Explore your passion for integrating science, technology, engineering and math across the curriculum with Millersville’s STEM Endorsement Program!

Interested in teaching STEM courses/content at your school? The STEM program endorsement is intended to improve a teacher's skills in dealing with complex classroom settings. The STEM endorsement is designed to provide additional knowledge and promote skills related to more integrative ways to deliver content in these areas. While the endorsement does not lead to state licensure, it may be added to an existing Level I or Level II Certificate. Millersville’s STEM endorsement courses can also be applied to the Assessment, Curriculum and Teaching Masters in Education Program with the addition of five more courses.

STEM education creates opportunities to integrate student-centered learning approaches to improve the quality of K-12 education and interaction with the larger community. This program incorporates active project-based learning, where you will develop and use skills in analysis, problem solving and critical thinking.
