Master of Education in Secondary Education - STEM - NITL (Online)

The Master of Education in Secondary Education with an Emphasis in STEM NITL degree program at Grand Canyon University prepares students to lead STEM education for sixth grade to twelfth grade. Students learn to integrate grades 6–12 subject matters, including STEM and educational psychology, as well as various 21st century instructional methods and strategies to produce positive student outcomes.

This program targets educators who desire to not only impact education, but impact STEM fields that affect our everyday lives and determine our future. Graduates of this program will gain the skills and knowledge to provide a solid STEM foundation, interdisciplinary curriculum and hands-on learning experiences within their classroom. An emphasis on technology and classroom diversity exposes graduate students to modern classroom learning tools and identifies practices on how to best meet diverse student needs that promote the most effective learning.

As a result of the significant demand for more next-generation innovators in STEM disciplines, secondary educators skilled in STEM are also in high demand. This program serves as a pathway for teachers to help fulfill the shortage of STEM educators and pursue a career in motivating young learners to explore STEM, generating interest and curiosity in these critical areas, inspiring them to be passionate about the world, preparing them for STEM education at the postsecondary level and encouraging them to pursue a career as tomorrow’s leaders of innovation.

This program does not include a student teaching capstone, and therefore does not lead to an Institutional Recommendation (IR) from GCU to obtain certification. However, candidates will be required to complete practicum hours within the courses to prepare them to teach in the grades 6-12 settings.
