Throughout your three years of study on the BSc (Hons) Education for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degree you will be exploring concepts that are studied across the primary and secondary phases through a thematic approach.

Themes such as ‘The World of Innovation’ and ‘Sustainable Earth’ will allow you to draw out the interconnectedness of the separate strands of study which incorporate all aspects of S(Biology, Chemistry and Physics)TEM.

STEM is effectively understood and communicated when a relationship and a relevance is identified that incorporates all strands; for example where mathematical modelling has a relevance and authentic purpose when related to a scientific problem and where data needs to be analysed.

This employer-directed approach will allow students to develop scientific knowledge and more importantly develop creative and innovative responses to real-life issues. Drawing on the use of technology, you will apply digital skills as a way to create, communicate and work collaboratively when identifying and responding to current and future demands of STEM education through stimulating, creative and adaptive approaches.
