Changing the Face of STEM Education

LVC’s Master’s Degree in STEM Education is designed to produce leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math pedagogy. Immediately implement new, standards-based teaching methods in your classroom and provide your students with the real-life application skills they need for future success. 

Our growing program employs a collaborative learning approach with classes designed to apply to any age range, from K–12. High school teachers work alongside middle school and elementary teachers to understand the “big ideas” in science education and how to integrate core concepts.

Flexible course offerings help you take courses at your own pace and work around your teaching schedule. Take courses online, at our campus in Annville, or at our satellite facility at the Dixon Center in Harrisburg. Our summer field experiences focus on STEM application and put you directly in the community, from touring local industries to exploring regional watersheds.

Whether you’re a recent graduate working toward permanent teacher certification or an experienced teacher who needs to fulfill your Act 48 credits in Pennsylvania, our Master’s Degree in STEM Education works for you and your students.
