M.Ed. in STEM Education

The STEM Education program prepares K-16 teachers to utilize digital resources to foster the innovative engagement of diverse learners associated with integrated science programs such as STEM. The courses offer a holistic overview of historical and current issues and trends impacting integrated science education while cultivating research-based strategies to improve student learning. The courses are designed to provide the educator experience with integrated curriculum utilizing the technological and didactic skill sets required for empowering 21st century learning in a global, digital society.

As part of your coursework, you’ll complete the National Certificate for STEM Teaching (NCST) with the National Institute of STEM Education (NISE). The NCST transfers into ACE as two courses, SCI5243** and SCI5263**, needed for degree completion.

Important Note: NISE only offers the NCST to individuals located inside the U.S, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. Therefore, those located in all other countries are ineligible to enroll in the M.Ed. in STEM Education.
