Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are the building blocks of our future.

In this increasingly complex world of technology and globalization, it is essential for today’s educators to equip the next generation with the fundamental skills to solve challenging problems, gather and evaluate data, and apply critical thinking skills to make sound decisions.


M.S. STEM Education (online)

The M.S. in STEM Education (online) fulfills the critical need for improving STEM education by training effective educators who specialize in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The M.S. in STEM Education is a collaboration between the Science Education and Mathematics Education programs. Candidates in the program simultaneously earn the M.S. in STEM Education while completing most of the requirements necessary to obtain the Iowa K-12 STEM Education Specialist endorsement (this endorsement is only for the state of Iowa). Candidates seeking the endorsement will need to complete additional coursework before applying to the Iowa BOEE.
