STEM Education (M.A., M.Ed., Ph.D.)
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) play an increasingly important role in addressing critical needs of society and generating innovation that drives the global economy. This program prepares elementary teachers through the K-6 certification program and secondary teachers through 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 postsecondary teaching. This program has its own application process.
