With only 41% of teachers in Maryland being prepared in-state, the proposed degree is timely and uniquely prepares graduates for employment in this critical occupational growth area. No other institution of higher education in Maryland offers a Middle Grades STEM degree.
The Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades STEM at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) was developed in collaboration with UMBC’s Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics departments along with its College of Engineering and Information Technology to ensure that the program includes in-depth understanding of all STEM content areas. The education coursework is patterned after existing UMBC teacher certification programs but tailored to focus on characteristics of teaching specific to middle grades and STEM so that graduates can engage their students in meaningful inquiry-driven instruction as required by new education standards (e.g., Maryland College and Career Readiness Mathematical Standards, Next Generation Science Standards). The new degree will further UMBC’s mission to prepare its talented undergraduate students for entry into the workforce, community service, and leadership.
