Overview

Program Overview

The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) offers the Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades STEM in response to the critical shortage declared by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) of middle grades (4-9) teachers in mathematics in science and the call by the University System of Maryland (USM) 10-year strategic plan (“Powering Maryland Forward”) to “triple the number of STEM teachers graduating from USM institutions.” 

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.
