Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Watson College of Education

Program Coordinators: Drs. Moallem and Narayan

The Watson College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences offer an interdisciplinary minor in Integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (iSTEM) with Teaching Licensure designed to enable students earning a B.S. degree in the following STEM disciplines: biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, mathematics, and physics, earn a teaching licensure.

Requirements of an Integrated STEM with Teaching Licensure Minor

The program consists of a selection of courses designed as Integrated STEM, coupled with pedagogy courses that also stress STEM Integration. Since students earning a B.S. in the specified disciplines will complete the Integrated STEM courses as part of their major, the minor provides a pathway for students enrolled in the program to earn their teachng licensure while completing only 29 additional hours of pedagogy courses. For purposes of this program, a course designated as an Integrated STEM course must include one of the following learning outcomes:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of connections among two or more STEM disciplines; and
  • Apply STEM problem solving methodologies, such as the scientific method, the engineering design process, or modeling, to real world problems.

iSTEM Courses (25-30 hours total completed as part of the student’s major)

Secondary Teaching Licensure - Education Courses (29 hours)
