STEM Education

A group of middle school students collaborate on a science project.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) play an increasingly important role in addressing the critical needs of society and generating innovation that drives the global economy. The STEM Education faculty is committed to providing equitable access to STEM careers and literacy for a diverse community of learners. We build and cultivate interest in STEM topics through innovative and socially responsive research, teaching, and teacher preparation informed by the learning sciences.

Our STEM Education degrees prepare elementary teachers through the K-6 certification program and secondary teachers through GradUTeach, developed in partnership with the nationally recognized UTeach program. Our graduate students return to the classroom and educational organizations in leadership roles and go on to make major contributions in STEM education research and teaching. We also offer options that empower current teachers to extend their knowledge of STEM education.
