The STEM Education program of the Florida Institute of Technology is designed for those who seek to further their knowledge of the subject matter, educational theory, research, and practice in one of four specializations: Science Education, Mathematics Education, Educational Technology, or Elementary Science Education.


Who May Apply For This Program?

The STEM Education program of the Florida Institute of Technology is open to students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree in a STEM or related education field. It is helpful, but not necessary, to have some teaching experience. In addition:
  • This Master’s degree is designed to build upon prior knowledge and experience, both broadening and deepening it.
  • This program assumes that students are motivated by and focused on their professional development and career path.
  • All Education courses in this program engage students in projects that allow them to explore interests, as well as require them to expand, integrate, and apply their course material.

The MS in STEM Education is a 30-credit degree program. It typically takes at least 1.5 years to complete all degree requirements, including a final program examination (i.e., either a thesis defense or a comprehensive oral examination). However, students who work (e.g., teach) and take classes on a part-time basis often require additional time to complete their degree requirements.

Career Outlook

The Department of Labor identified 14 sectors that are “projected to add substantial numbers of new jobs to the economy or affect the growth of other industries or are being transformed by technology and innovation requiring new sets of skills for workers”:

  • advanced manufacturing,
  • automotive,
  • construction,
  • financial services,
  • geospatial technology,
  • homeland security,
  • information technology,
  • transportation,
  • aerospace,
  • biotechnology,
  • energy,
  • healthcare,
  • hospitality
  • retail

Most graduates of our program’s four specializations have gone on to teach in K-16 institutions, usually in STEM areas, both in the US and in other countries. Those with sufficient ability and experience have served as department heads and district curriculum specialists.
