STEM Education Program

STEM Education Program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)

Welcome! The University of Colorado Denver offers a unique opportunity for teachers to deepen their understanding of STEM content knowledge and to experience leadership opportunities. Our master’s program is designed to enrich teachers’ subject content knowledge in the STEM disciplines and to build upon their leadership potential in urban and diverse settings through high-quality standards-based teaching practices revolving around interactive learning opportunities of inquiry, dialogue, writing and reflection.

Mathematics Education

This program, led by nationally and internationally recognized faculty, is uniquely designed for teachers who aspire to implement culturally responsive, socially just pedagogy that supports all students’ mathematical conceptual understanding and skills. The program places central focus on connecting research in mathematics education to teacher practices in K-12 educational settings.

This program also has continuing education master’s level classes that build on one another and can be considered a pathway to certificates, endorsements and degrees. The classes are also available to community members as non-degree students. These classes are taught by expert faculty and influential members of the Denver education community who provide information and skills that are readily applicable and culturally responsive.
