The STEM Studies Department offers innovative, interdisciplinary
programs and courses spanning the sciences, mathematics, and technology
at DePaul. The department works in close collaboration with
DePaul's STEM Center.
The department administers the Master of Science
in Science Education, a program to prepare master teachers in science at the middle school level. The program addresses a great need for
content-based graduate study to enhance the teaching of science at the
middle school level. The program integrates content with pedagogy, is
inquiry-based, and integrates mathematics and technology with science.
The STEM Studies Department also offers innovative science courses and
special programs for undergraduates to engage highly diverse audiences
in rich, contemporary science content.
