The College offers comprehensive programs in early, middle, and secondary STEM teacher education (i.e., science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), with an emphasis on innovation and outreach. These programs are housed in two departments, including the Middle-Secondary and Instructional Technology Department and the Early Childhood Education Department. STEM faculty members in the College comprise a diverse and committed community of scholars and practitioners, supporting the work of Georgia State as a leading urban research institution.
The College has key partnerships and teacher pipelines efforts in STEM fields with local K-12 schools, institutions of higher education, and organizations and businesses, leading to notable increases in the strong intellectual capital and talent of Georgia State’s teacher candidates in STEM fields. Notably, Georgia State is a member of the STEM Leadership Collaboration associated with the national program Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI). In addition, the College, in collaboration with the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State, participates in several projects and initiatives supported by the University System of Georgia STEM II funding, such as the faculty mini-grants program, the Fostering Our Communities Understanding of Science (FOCUS) course, and the Academy for Future Teachers (AFT) program.
