Earn an M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership: Special Studies in STEM Education

University of Maryland College Park M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership: Special Studies in
STEM Education with an add-on certification endorsement from state of Maryland as a STEM Instructional Leader

COLLEGE PARK, MD (January, 2017) – The M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership: Special Studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education is a rigorous, content-focused program that allows in-service elementary and middle school teachers to explore relationships among science, engineering, and mathematics through a transdisciplinary approach to integrated STEM. Teachers in the program use cutting edge technology and innovative tools to build a Professional Learning Network as they develop philosophies regarding issues of authenticity, equity, and achievement in STEM.

The creation of the program was made possible through a grant from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). Over the course of two years, a group of UMD faculty fellows from the departments of Engineering, Mathematics, Cell Biology & Molecular Genetics, Entomology, and Physics, along with the College of Education, the College of Information Studies, and the Center for Teaching Excellence, came together to develop course experiences for in-service elementary and middle school teachers. Each course in the program has been designed to reflect the MSDE STEM Standards of Practice, as well as the core ideas and practices of the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Curriculum. 

Courses are held at The Universities at Shady Grove in Gaithersburg, MD.

This convenient master’s program enables teachers to earn a degree while maintaining teaching commitments, and prepares educators to meet the demand for high-quality instruction in STEM fields.
