Program Description:

There is growing concern that the United States is not preparing a sufficient number of students, teachers and practitioners in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). A large majority of secondary school students fail to reach proficiency in math and science, and many are taught by teachers lacking adequate subject matter knowledge. In order to address this growing crisis, Niagara University is now offering graduate course work for teachers who wish to enhance their understanding and skills in teaching the critical areas of math, science, and technology (MST). The program consists of 37 credit hours and leads to a master of science in education (M.S.Ed.) degree or a certificate of advanced study (CAS). This program leads to professional certification or an advanced certificate of study in MST, meeting both state and national calls for additional expertise in these areas.

Accreditation:

Niagara University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
