Texas A&M Graduate STEM Certificate
The Texas A&M Graduate STEM Certificate is a merit demonstrating knowledge, methods, and expertise in STEM learning experiences. It is integrated into the first two semesters of the online STEM emphasis master’s program. Alternatively, the Texas A&M Graduate STEM Certificate can also be taken as a standalone 12-credit hour experience where students can learn about highly effective STEM pedagogy.
The STEM Certificate comprises of four courses with two offered in the summer (EDCI 620 & 723) and two in the subsequent fall (EDCI 720 & 721). The program is unique because it offers the flexibility for students to continue their studies beyond the 12-credit hour STEM Certificate. Specifically, credits earned during the STEM Certificate directly apply toward your M.Ed. degree.
