STEM Endorsement Graduate Program

Both STEM and non-STEM educators can gain skills for integrating science, technology, engineering and math in their curriculums with Millersville University’s fully online STEM Endorsement Program.

Why Study This Program?

Explore your passion for integrating science, technology, engineering and math across the curriculum with Millersville University’s Integrative STEM Education Endorsement program. This graduate-level program is intended to improve a teacher's skills in dealing with complex classroom settings. The STEM endorsement provides additional knowledge and promotes skills related to more integrative ways to deliver content in these subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

While the endorsement does not lead to state licensure, it may be added to an existing Level I or Level II Certificate. The coursework completed through the STEM Endorsement Program can also be applied to Millersville University's Assessment, Curriculum and Teaching Masters in Education (M.Ed.) degree with the addition of five more courses.

This program is designed for teachers who hold an initial teaching certification in any discipline K-12, with a particular emphasis on teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. However, this program could also serve teachers in non-STEM disciplines who are interested in embracing the ideas associated with STEM education.

Students of this 12-credit, four-course program can complete their coursework entirely online on a full- or part-time basis. The credits achieved through this program meet ACT 48 requirements. Millersville University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and approved by the American Association of University Women.

What Will You Learn?

STEM Education creates opportunities to integrate student-centered learning approaches to improve the quality of K-12 education and interaction with the larger community. The graduate-level endorsement program at Millersville University incorporates active project-based learning, where you will develop and utilize skills in analysis, problem solving and critical thinking.

The 12-credit curriculum builds upon existing, high-quality science, technology, engineering and math education courses taught by Millersville University’s faculty experts. The four courses of the STEM Endorsement program explore science curriculum and reform, mathematics in the school, instructional technology, design and assessment, and engineering principles and concepts for the non-engineer.
