STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), M.Ed. (online format)

The M. Ed. in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is for students who want to become STEM specialists.

This proposed program will engage and educate STEM educators, so they may prepare their students to be think-ready, learn-ready and work-ready; therefore, ensuring student success. Integrating subjects such as mathematics and science has long been a concern in the education community. Through this program educators will learn to look at how big ideas can become interconnected and thus make learning both appealing and broadly applicable in our classrooms. For example, engineering stresses problem solving; how to use mathematics and science in a project-based (PBL) context. 

This 30 semester hour program with 12 semester hours of required core courses, 15 semester hours of required subject area courses and one (or two) suggested elective course(s) will teach and equip educators with STEM training and preparation for the STEM teaching field. 

Admission, Maintenance, and Graduation Requirements

  1. Must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university and must be admitted to the Mississippi College Graduate School.
  2. Must have at least eighteen semester hours of undergraduate courses in courses in the teaching field in which the specialization of the STEM graduate degree will be pursued.  (Such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics.)
  3. No degree requirement may be waived without the approval of the Graduate Office.

Make application for graduation with the registrar's Office.

(The diploma is ordered from this information.)

Apply for a STEM Project-Based Practicum Examination with the Graduate Office.

Should any candidates receive less than a B in any phase of the program he/she will be required to have a successful oral examination conducted by the STEM faculty.
