STEM Teaching Program Overview

The Master of Science in STEM Education degree (non-thesis option) requires 30 credits of coursework. Students pursuing the degree may double count up to six credits which were used in fulfilling the requirements of their undergraduate degree, towards their graduate program. One additional 400-level course may be counted toward the graduate degree, if the course is not counted towards the undergraduate degree. All courses must have been passed with a “B-” or better.

For all three specialty areas – Science Teaching, Mathematics Teaching, and Computer Science Teaching – the curriculum structure consists of (i) a set of required courses, (ii) a pair of discipline specific pedagogy courses, and (iii) general elective courses that serve to supplement the student’s technical interests.
