Students who graduate with UVM's Computer Science Education (CSE) minor will have a deep understanding of computational thinking and its significance in transforming education, along with practical and meaningful ways to integrate computer science into their professional practice.
Boost Your Career Prospects
Computing represents two-thirds of projected new STEM jobs in the U.S. However, less than 3% of college students earn a Computer Science degree, and only 8% of STEM graduates major in Computer Science.
Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Innovation
The CSE minor is a collaboration in program design and implementation between UVM’s Computer Science and Education Departments. This alliance provides innovative programming, teaching and research.
Designed for students interested in computer science education in schools and other settings, the CSE minor includes six courses (19 credits). There are five required courses (16 credits) in Computer Science and one required course (3 credits) in the Department of Education.
Licensure Endorsement and Concentration
Secondary Education students seeking licensure in grades 7-12 are eligible for an endorsement in Computer Science Education to go along with their primary licensure. The Secondary Education Program also offers a major concentration in Computer Science for students interested in computer science as their primary endorsement area for licensure.
