M.A. in STEM Education

Rowan University’s Master of Arts in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education prepares students for successful careers as highly skilled math and science teachers. The M.A. in STEM Education 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. This program is carefully designed such that all coursework has a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) focus that provides the ideal pedagogical preparation for prospective mathematics or science teachers in the K-12 setting. 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.

The specializations within the MA in STEM Education are:

  • Mathematics
  • Science

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJ DOE), not Rowan University, grants certifications based on requirements set by the state. While coursework for this program meets the academic requirements for NJ DOE certification, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all other certification requirements are met, including, but not limited to, appropriate type and level of license and years of experience. NJ DOE certification requirements are subject to change. Certification applications are evaluated, by NJ DOE, based on the most current state requirements.
