Lead the STEM Future.

New in 2017, it's been said that the best way to predict the future is to create it. At Western, we agree but we also think another way is to teach it. With a greater reliance on technology and the increasingly fast pace of change it's important that teachers like you are ready and equipped with the skills and knowledge to teach to the future.

Our newly developed Master of Education (STEM) degree helps you enhance your knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to help you teach, lead and better prepare your students to face the challenges of the future. Taught online, the course allows you to gain the skills needed to be a STEM leader in your school and learn how to develop, enact and evaluate curriculum reform for the future.
