The Department of Curriculum and Education offers a minor in STEM Education and a Certificate of Proficiency in STEM Education, both of which are open to students majoring in the STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — and who are interested in acquiring valuable communication skills in these complex subject areas, in developing a deeper understanding of how people learn science, mathematics, and computer science, and in applying research-based strategies to engage others in understanding these subjects.

The certificate and minor in STEM Education are also initial pathways into the undergraduate teacher licensure program that prepares secondary teachers in the following subjects: mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, or computer science.
