STEM Teaching Program at a Glance
The STEM Teaching Program is an innovative collaboration between sciences and education that supports students seeking teaching certification in science and mathematics fields. Pathways exist for first/second year students, third year/transfer students, and postbacs that already have an undergraduate degree.
The STEM Teaching Program uniquely supports students. As a student, you are eligible for STEM Teaching Program-specific scholarships and internships. You will immediately apply what you learn by practicing in real classrooms from your first course throughout the entire program. Strong partnerships with K-12 education will continue to support you after you graduate.
Students seeking teaching certification and endorsement through the STEM Teaching Program complete an approved science, mathematics or computer science degree and the STEM Teaching Program Minor.
Teacher certification information may be found by contacting Central's Teaching Certification Office, 509-963-2661.
