Master of Education: STEAM

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM)

Adding Arts to the traditional STEM framework


Considering the Role of Each STEAM Discipline to Develop Student Understanding

The STEAM masters specialization takes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to the next level by adding Arts (liberal, social, manual, physical and fine arts) to the framework for integrated instruction. STEAM empowers teachers to employ a project-based learning approach that crosses all of these disciplines in solving everyday problems. This approach aligns with Common Core Standards and has been shown to engage students and allow them to use both left and right brained thinking in the same exercise.
