Program Description

  • Bachelor of Science (BS): iSTEM

The iSTEM program prepares students with a broad understanding of all four STEM disciplines, focused on the PreK–8 grade range.  This is a dual-major program, with the iSTEM major being paired with one of several programs offered through the School of Education (Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education, Special Education, or Urban Education). Through the iSTEM program, students choose a specialization in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, or Technology. Most iSTEM students complete enough Math and Science coursework to be eligible for middle school endorsement in these two subject areas, and more than 65% also take enough technology education coursework to be eligible for endorsement in that discipline.  

The Integrative-STEM major is designed as a multidisciplinary major for K-6 education majors. There are five (5) K-6 education majors at TCNJ (i) Deaf & Hard of Hearing, (ii) Early Childhood, (iii) Elementary Education,  (iv) Special Education, and (v) Urban Education. Below are links to program sheets for our five Integrative-STEM education majors:
