The 12-credit Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education Concentration is for e+ students passionate about education and teaching in non-traditional settings. The STEM Education Concentration gives students an opportunity to engage in a design-rich, educational curriculum that incorporates K-12 teaching practicum experience at multiple levels. Students explore and experience the scientific, technological and scholarly approach to K-12 education through a practicum-rich curriculum. Students develop a deeper knowledge of K-12 education without completing a teaching licensure program.
