STEM Certificate Program--COMING SOON!

Thank you for your interest in NJCU's Ed Tech's STEM Certificate Program.

New Jersey City University (NJCU) is launching a groundbreaking STEM Certificate Program for all K-12 Educators, School Library Media Specialists, Technology Coordinators and School Leaders. The NJCU STEM Certificate is unique because it is designed by the College of Education’s award-winning Educational Technology program and is NJ's only rigorous four-course program that provides K-12 educators in all disciplines, school leaders and librarians with both foundational STEM pedagogy, and the hands-on experience to be successful integrating STEM in their classrooms, schools, and districts.

The Certificate will be delivered as primarily an online, facilitated program with a required two-days of hands-on instruction and submission of a portfolio to evidence learning. The four courses are offered in one 15-week semester, two courses in the first seven weeks and two courses in the second seven weeks. The entire certificate can be completed online in one semester or over the course of a year. There are no tests or exams in any of the classes; the entire program is project-based.

The first course, STEM Foundations, was co-developed by Eduscape as an extension of their STEM Made Simple® program and is delivered in partnership with NJCU. The remaining two-thirds of the certificate consists of three online courses delivered by NJCU faculty in the department of Educational Technology. The partnership allows for educators to receive both pragmatic, hands-on experience as well as research-based, theoretical knowledge and skills. Additionally, the partnership leverages local, national and international opportunities for sustainability.

Educators will have the option to complete the Certificate as noncredit through the Division of Professional Education and Lifelong Learning or for graduate credit through the department of Educational Technology. 

Students who opt to register for courses for graduate credit will be offered the opportunity for those classes, 12 credits, to be applied toward a 36-credit Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology or a Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology with School Library Media Specialist certification.
