Master of Education in STEM Teaching

Earn your M.Ed. in STEM teaching in 14 months

The master of education graduate program in STEM teaching from Marquette University prepares graduate students to be exceptional educators in science, technology, engineering, and math.

This accelerated 14-month M.Ed. program requires students to have a bachelor's degree in STEM education discipline. Upon program completion, students will graduate with a Master's in Education and earn a license endorsement for initial Wisconsin teacher licensure in science grades 4—12 or math grades 4—12 with basic content knowledge in computer science. This computer science concentration can be utilized to add on Wisconsin certification through the content test pathway (Praxis) once initial licensure is issued.

The master of education in STEM teaching program is funded by the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship. Scholarship and stipend support is available.
