About the Program

The post bachelor's certificate in Undergraduate STEM Education supports the professional development of graduate students from STEM disciplines. This program prepares STEM graduate students to implement evidence-based pedagogies that have been demonstrated to be effective for teaching undergraduate STEM courses. This interdisciplinary program provides a mechanism to allow doctoral students from a STEM discipline to learn about pedagogical approaches appropriate for teaching STEM undergraduates, and research, assessment and evaluation of STEM programs. Such skills, experiences and competencies will both diversify the career prospects of these graduate students as well as position them to participate more fully in programs with STEM Education and/or outreach as their “broader impact.”

Admission Requirements

All students enrolled in full time STEM graduate programs or equivalent programs are eligible. Students must obtain prior approval of their program director.
