Middle school and high school teachers looking to develop innovative practices in designing an inquiry-based science and/or mathematics classroom, will choose a course of study in Secondary STEM.
This rigorous curriculum challenges secondary teachers to focus their attention on the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment practices that:
- Facilitate the convergence and interdisciplinary nature of STEM as a foundation for teaching;
- Form a more holistic approach to teaching and learning about natural phenomena, teaching you to draw from multiple disciplines to help students develop rigorous explanatory practices in all subjects and make sense of complexity;
- Offer collaborative problem solving and opportunities to engage in rich discourse with instructors and other educators in your field from around the world.
The Master’s of Education in Secondary STEM requires a minimum of 32 units of study. The program can be completed in about one year on a full-time basis or over the course of two to three years on a part-time basis.
