STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering And Math) Education
Develop your knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math while learning how to integrate those subjects into the classroom through the graduate-level STEM Education program.
Why Study This Program?
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Education, a concentration within the Assessment, Curriculum and Teaching graduate degree, is designed for educators interested in developing their knowledge and experience with integrated STEM Education. Through a multidisciplinary approach, this program helps prepare graduates to integrate modern science, technology, engineering and mathematics into the classroom.
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. STEM Education students can progress through this graduate-level course of study with accelerated courses which are offered completely online. The credits achieved through this program meet ACT 48 requirements.
Graduates of this program receive a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Assessment, Curriculum and Teaching. 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?
Despite the online nature of this graduate-level program, passionate faculty at Millersville University ensure that STEM Education students can:
- Integrate student-centered learning approaches to improve the quality of K-12 education and interaction with the larger community.
- Incorporate active project-based learning.
- Create varied and targeted assessments that effectively measure student learning aligned to content standards and leveraging emergent instructional models.
These marketable skills are fostered through professional core courses about research methods, educational psychology and public policy. Assessment, Curriculum and Teaching core courses complement those foundations by exploring current technology, instructional design, science curriculums, integrative education, engineering principles and mathematics in schools. Students complete their study with a faculty-advised capstone experience for teaching and learning.
