Contact: Mark Daily, (208)732-6424

The Associate of Science-Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) degree emphasizes a broad program of study in science, technology, engineering, math and related fields. The program of study includes an introduction to professions in STEM and a STEM learning project. The program provides students who have not decided on a specific STEM career path an opportunity to develop a foundation in STEM and to take courses that lead to a variety of STEM careers. With careful advising, students can follow a specific STEM pathway that has been designed to articulate to an Idaho public four-year college or university bachelorette degree program. Students are strongly encouraged to work with an advisor and transfer institution.

It is strongly recommended that students contact their transfer institution as soon as possible regarding specific coursework needed for the transfer institution’s core curriculum, college of education requirements, and/or state certification requirements.

Upon successful completion of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program, a student will be able to:

  1. Use technology, math, and science concepts separately, or in combination to interpret, formulate and solve problems pertaining to STEM .
  2. Form and test a hypothesis in the laboratory using appropriate tools and techniques for data collection and/or analysis.
  3. Interpret and communicate information in a STEM field via written, spoken, and/or visual representations.
  4. Apply foundational knowledge and models appropriate to disciplines in the Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, Math and Technology to analyze and/or predict phenomena.
