Educator Preparation Program

Colorado School of Mines

MS in STEM Education

This non-thesis Masters degree can be completed in as little as one year. You can specialize in one of three areas: Science Teaching, Mathematics Teaching, or Computer Science Teaching.

The Teach@Mines curriculum has been designed to prepare math and science teachers exclusively. This means that your classmates will be STEM majors; all your program instructors and mentors will be math, science, and computer science teachers; and most importantly everything you learn will be specifically about teaching your subject area.

The coursework consists of 24 credits of licensure coursework plus an additional 6 credits of electives for a total of 30 credit hours. Licensure coursework includes Field Experience; Educational Psychology and Assessment; Dynamic Teaching-Motivation, Classroom Management, and Differentiation of Instruction; two methods courses – Practices in the Field and Teaching Techniques; Practicum; and Student Teaching.  All courses are delivered in the evening either on the Mines campus or online.

The T@M faculty consist of practicing teachers and education researchers.  You will have a dedicated mentor and advisor who will support you throughout your program and especially during practicum and student teaching.

T@M also maintains close connections with local school districts and facilitates job placement after completion of licensure.
