M.Ed. in STEM Education

Designed in conjunction with the National Institute for STEM Education, this program provides a holistic and integrated approach to science education. You’ll learn to develop testable questions, establish variables and controls, select data collection methods, and use tools to test hypotheses. Through systematic problem solving and evidence-based strategies, you’ll help K-16 students become leaders in a technical world. See why American College of Education was named among the best in the EdTech Cool Tool Awards, the largest recognition program in education technology.

As part of your coursework, you’ll complete the National Certificate for STEM Teaching (NCST) with the National Institute of STEM Education (NISE). The NCST transfers into ACE as two courses, SCI5243** and SCI5263**, needed for degree completion. To ensure program progression, you must complete the NCST prior to the end of your final term/course at ACE.**
