Our Master of Science for Teachers Program is designed for current K-12 teachers interested in expanding their knowledge of STEM and learning from expert faculty.

Program Description

The MST program provides graduate-level classroom and laboratory instruction for teachers or going into science, mathematics, engineering, and/or technology.  MST students are encouraged to adapt activities, demonstrations, laboratory exercises and methods of teaching and apply these as projects in their own classrooms during the academic year.  Courses for the participants are offered in a variety of disciplines and are led by New Mexico Tech faculty.  Courses are offered throughout the year via distance education with in-person course options in summer on the New Mexico Tech campus and around the state.
