Graduate Programs in Integrative STEM Education
A Master of Education (MEd) in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) integrates concepts that are usually taught as separate subjects in different classes and emphasizes the application of knowledge to real-life situations. A lesson or unit in a STEM class is typically based around finding a solution to a real-world problem and tends to emphasize project-based learning.
Arcadia’s MEd in Integrative STEM prepares you to plan, teach, assess, and reflect on integrated STEM instruction inside and outside the classroom. Specifically, you learn to incorporate, develop, and implement units of study and curricula that promote skills such as creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration in Pre K-12 classrooms.

Understanding the Designed World
Use the engineering design process and science inquiry to explore concepts and problems in Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences as they relate to PK-12 curriculum and classroom.
STEM Literacies and Technology
STEM Literacy is an ability to effectively communicate concepts and content from STEM in a way that demonstrates an understanding of the interconnectedness of the individual STEM fields in solving challenges or problems that cannot be resolved by any one individual approach.
STEM Curriculum and Assessment in Action
Conduct curriculum mapping and topic study, learn to develop curriculum and assessments at the district and classroom level, and integrate STEM topics into other subject areas in PK-12 classrooms. The course will develop your abilities to plan project-based assessments, assessment with real-world connections, and authentic applications.
