We are seeking students with a demonstrated aptitude in
the STEM disciplines, a desire to teach, a willingness to explore the high-needs
school environment, and a commitment to quality education for all children.
STEM Disciplines at UMBC encompass
and Molecular Biology
and Computational Biology
and Environmental Systems
The momentum of STEM education on campus is growing with the unveiling of
our physics education and mathematics education concentrations. Additionally, we are working on the academic program
and pathway to teacher certification for engineering education.
If you have completed your BA or BS in a STEM discipline
and want to teach, the Sherman Program will support your endeavors! We
are currently seeking students who are entering UMBC’s two-year Masters
of Arts in Teaching
program, which will prepare you for the Praxis II Pedagogy, a piece of Maryland’s
teacher certification requirement.
If you are an incoming freshman who is interested in teaching, but not in
STEM, check out the Humanities
and the Sondheim
Public Affairs Scholars Program.
If you are a transfer student who is planning to pursue
a degree in a non-STEM discipline and complete the Teacher Certification
Program, please refer to UMBC’s Department of Education Web site for a list of scholarships.
