Our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education program from Rowan University is carefully designed such that all coursework has a STEM focus that provides the ideal pedagogical preparation for prospective mathematics or science teachers in the K-12 setting.


Our M.A. in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education at Rowan University offers the unique opportunity for students who have undergraduate degrees in mathematics, engineering, or the sciences to pursue an initial New Jersey teaching certificate in mathematics and/or the sciences and a Master's degree simultaneously. 

We prepare our students for successful careers as highly-skilled teachers in one of our concentrations - mathematics or science.

This 13-month program includes an early field experience; face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses; and a yearlong teacher residency. The culminating experience is a seminar in which students transition from teacher candidate to teacher by planning for leading their own classrooms. The M.A. in STEM Education is offered through Rowan University's CAEP Accredited College of Education.
