Degree Programs

The Project to Advance Science Education (PASE) focuses on the "S" in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. PASE is dedicated to enhancing science instruction through basic research, the preparation of science teachers for school service, and the development of science education leaders and professors who will positively impact science teaching in K-12 schools and higher education settings. The PASE program is detailed in a PDF brochure.

Bachelor's degrees with an emphasis on science education are explored at the UAteach Program for Math, Science, and Computer Science Teacher Preparation. This program comprises a minor in secondary education that prepares STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) majors for the option of teaching biology, mathematics, chemistry, physics or computer science.
