Students in the program complete 10 shared courses (30 credits) which, as described above, focus on evidence-based best practices for teaching that centers equity-oriented education.  This approach also allows students to dive more deeply into topics relevant to their professional goals by offering engaging transdisciplinary work in STEAM (12 credits) and Literacy (9 credits).The students will also take core courses (9 credits) in central theoretical stances, research in the classroom, and a capstone course where they would complete their master's project. In addition to graduating with their master's, all students would also have completed the requirements for the STEM endorsement from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (available to PA licensed teachers).
