The Master of Science in Teaching (MST) is a 33 credit hour Master’s Degree program containing courses that integrate discipline-specific content and research-based instructional strategies. The overarching goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and skills of secondary mathematics and science teachers in order to improve the learning of their students. In addition to taking the specialized courses of the program focused on content and teaching and learning methods, MST students are required to conduct education research. Five of the required 31 hours are devoted to the completion of an education research thesis project.

The STEM Education Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary degree program for those who have an interest in improving the quality of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics education through research. The concentration is housed in the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) and governed by an interdisciplinary committee consisting of STEM education faculty associated with COEHD and the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (RiSE Center). The program prepares people for faculty positions in STEM education research.
