Framingham State campus
The Master of Education with a concentration in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) is designed for teachers in Grades 1-6 who want to increase their knowledge and comfort with science, technology, engineering, and math content, as well as the pedagogical skills necessary to create and support a 21st century inquiry learning environment.  The program features hybrid courses (both face-to-face and online interaction) that use global resources and model pedagogy that engage and include all learners.  Each course simulates a genuine classroom where participants have a variety of opportunities to communicate, share, and link ideas, while taking on different roles and working with different teams. Technology tools and applications are used to infuse each course.

Framingham State University’s M.Ed. with a concentration in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) is approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for Professional teacher licensure for teachers who hold an Initial license in Elementary Education.

The program is designed as a three-year cohort program that encompasses three summers and three academic years. Pre-assignments for summer courses are a regular expectation for all three summers.

The overarching program goal is to enable grade 1-6 teachers to design and assess relevant STEM teaching and learning in a 21st century educational environment.

Coordinator and Advisor: Dr. Lawrence McKenna, Dept of Physics and Earth Sciences
