Master of Arts in Education (MAE)

UMBC’s Master of Arts in Education (MAE) Graduate Program combines the study of education and the academic disciplines of mathematics, science or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The program is designed for certified elementary, middle or high school teachers to expand content knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge and teacher leadership skills in mathematics, science or STEM to apply in their own classroom practice. It is ideal for teachers who view critical inquiry as a major part of teachers’ work and value mentoring other teaching professionals as part of their own professional development. With the program’s emphasis on teacher leadership, it is designed for those who aspire to become leading teachers in their content area.
