Master of Education in STEM Teaching
Marquette University's College of Education and Opus College of Engineering have been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship to develop and implement a 14-month Master's Degree program for new science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers.
Applicants to this accelerated program, starting summer 2018, must have a bachelor's degree in a STEM discipline. Inquiries can be made to Jennifer Gaul-Stout, the Noyce Scholar program coordinator.
As a 30-credit program, students will take courses as a cohort over four sessions: a summer, fall and spring semester, and a second summer. During that time they will engage in teaching experiences based upon the co-operative education internship model used in engineering. This will allow them to apply their coursework and theory directly to teaching experiences in the classroom. Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with a Master's in Education degree and teacher licensure in the State of Wisconsin.
Scholarships are available inclusive of tuition and stipend support. Applications are available via Marquette University's Graduate School. The deadline is February 15, 2018.
