Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Education
The following list is not exclusive. In consultation with their advisor, a student may propose other courses to fulfill a requirement:
The remaining courses will be chosen, in agreement with the students' advisors, from courses already offered by the Sciences, Mathematics, or Engineering Departments, from courses in Groups A, B, C, and D, or, up to the limit of four courses, as independent study courses and/or as internships that will immerse the student in experiences directly related to the practice of education and to its analysis and evaluation.
Examples of relevant internship experiences are teaching, curriculum development and implementation, development and implementation of educational innovations, teacher development programs, research in science, etc. One course will be awarded for each 120 hours of internship.
Students in the PhD program must take at least two graduate courses in the Mathematics, Sciences, or Engineering Departments.
First year MS students and first and second year PhD students are required to take an ongoing Program Seminar (Proseminar). MS students will receive a total of one course at the end of one year in this group, and PhD students will receive, at the end of two years, a total of two courses in this group (0.5 course-credits per term).
The Proseminar meets bi-weekly, is attended by interested faculty and researchers, focuses on issues of current interest, and constitutes a forum for outside speakers, students and faculty in the program to present their ongoing research and to discuss papers of outstanding relevance for those in the program. Students in the more advanced years of the program will be invited to use the Proseminar as a forum to present and get feedback on their dissertation work at various points during its development.
