The STEMM: A Multidisciplinary Certificate in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine.

The STEMM: A Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Certificate is designed to enhance students’ content knowledge in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine, and to assist students in integrating their knowledge of each of these disciplines:

  • Students with this certificate will be well prepared to work for industrial firms that perform outreach activities into K-12 classrooms.
  • They would also be ideal candidates for employment by museums of science and/or industry that seek employees who can work with K-12 students by leading activities or by designing interactive exhibits exploring the intersections of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health.
  • Secondary teacher certification students may choose this certificate to gain multidisciplinary knowledge of STEMM in addition to their selected major/minor for teaching.

The UM-Dearborn certificate, which requires a minimum of 15 credit hours, includes a broad, multidisciplinary group of courses to provide foundational knowledge for students interested in STEMM: science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.
