The STEM Certificate program is designed to build an increased understanding of the integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through the five-course sequence, current research will be examined to support the understanding of the best practices that exist in STEM teaching and learning. Students will design and implement lessons and units using an inquiry-based approach and build capacity in all STEM related disciplines. This program will also prepare current teachers to design new and support current STEM initiatives while providing the knowledge necessary to become STEM leaders within one’s school or district. Not only will STEM curriculum be examined but our program also supports an increased understanding of the historical, social, and cultural demands which often hinder effective teaching and learning in these areas. The program aligns with the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards and North Carolina Graduate Standards. Complete this certification in 10 months or take courses at your own pace.


To be considered for admission into the program, an applicant must:

  • Submit a completed graduate application
  • Submit a copy of a valid, non- provisional, non- expired NC teaching license
