• Technology Education
The Technology Education program at California University of Pennsylvania prepares students for K-12 technology education teaching certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). Technology education includes the study of selected technological systems that explore the solutions of technological problems and their associated social and environmental impacts. The major goal of our online technology education graduate program is to continue the professional development of teachers and leaders in the field of technology education by providing a broad-based understanding of the field and its direction. This program offers three options. The Technology Education Master’s and STEM Education Letter of Completion options can be completed separately. For the third option, students may complete the Master’s and Letter of Completion simultaneously. All options are delivered 100% online.

• Integrative STEM Education
The Integrative STEM Education Certificate is a post-baccalaureate program offered 100% online that examines best practices for integrating STEM concepts and competencies across all disciplines with the ability to apply STEM principles in both academic and real-world contexts. Upon completion candidates are eligible to apply for the PDE Integrative STEM Education endorsement.
The Master of Science in STEM Education (MSSE) Program at LVC produces leaders for schools, the state, and the nation. Our growing program employs a collaborative learning approach with classes designed to apply to any age range, from K-12. High school teachers work alongside middle school and elementary teachers, with each benefiting from the experience and insight of their colleagues. This learning environment helps MSSE students to prepare their own students for success in state and national assessments.

• Technology and Innovation
The Technology & Engineering Education program is a teacher training program for individuals seeking Pennsylvania State Certification in Technology Education (K-12). Students are broadly prepared in general education, technology and engineering, and professional teacher education. Emphasis is on understanding, applying, managing, and assessing design, bio-related, communication, energy and power, transportation and production technologies. Students may specialize in a technical area of their choice or opt for a concentration in engineering design. The undergraduate level Technology Education Teacher preparation program is designed for students coming right out of high school, or students who have been working in another field and now desire to pursue a bachelor’s degree and teacher certification. The undergraduate degree is a traditional four year degree, with one full semester being devoted to a professional experience in a local K-12 setting. The master of education program in technology education provides opportunities for continued professional growth of technology and engineering education teachers. Courses are required in educational research, philosophy and psychology. The Department offers a certification program for individuals seeking to become technology and engineering education teachers, but do not need to complete a second four-year degree. People with existing undergraduate degrees may elect to seek certification on either a graduate or undergraduate level. An advisory committee of technology education professionals assists with providing program relevancy. This program has been nationally recognized by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) and the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
