Program emphasis is on the pedagogical content knowledge, curriculum design, and assessment for STEAM. The program employs project-based learning, an inquiry-based research study, and leadership development so that candidates are prepared to meet the evolving needs of schools and districts in positions such as STEM/STEAM teachers, STEM/STEAM coordinators, instructional leaders, and curriculum developers. The program can be completed in 24 months and includes three courses that are eligible towards an endorsement certificate in teaching middle school mathematics.
