Master of Education in STEM

William Woods University

Build bright futures.

Students of every age must prepare to think deeply about solving the world’s most pressing problems — those at hand, and those of the future. They are tomorrow’s researchers, leaders, innovators and educators. Unfortunately, too few teachers are prepared to teach the specific nuances of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Online Master of Education in STEM at William Woods is an interdisciplinary approach to teaching these concepts, with the purpose of removing barriers that separate these four disciplines, integrating them into real-world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences. Using the Next Generation Science Standards as a guide to comprehensice STEM education, specific principles and skills to be addressed as essential are:

  • Asking questions and defining problems
  • Developing and using models
  • Planning and carrying out investigations
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Using mathematics and computational thinking
  • Constructing explanations and designing solutions
  • Engaging in arguments from evidence
  • Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Courses provide an in-depth understanding of the origin of STEM and its Guiding Principles, STEM literacy, and the integration of the content into and across K-12 curriculum. they teach the integration of technology (including coding), engineering (including robotics), and project-based learning with real-world applications into curricula.

YOUR DEGREE AT WORK
