Undergraduate Certificate of Proficiency in STEM Education

Preparing future STEM professionals to advance the understanding and communication of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

STEM Education comprises a partnership in the University of Arkansas between its Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and College of Education and Health Professions.

The Certificate in STEM Education is for undergraduate STEM majors interested in acquiring valuable communication skills in these complex subject areas, developing a deeper understanding of how people think about and learn these subjects, and applying research-based strategies to engage others in understanding these subjects.

The 9 credit-hour Certificate in STEM Education is neither a minor nor teacher licensure program.  However, these courses can be applied to the undergraduate Minor in STEM Education and also to the teacher licensure program that prepares students for secondary licensure in the following subjects:  Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or Computer Science.  The Office of Teacher Education can answer questions about teacher licensure.
