Ph.D. in Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) North Dakota State University - Graduate School
Students in the Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM) Education program at North Dakota State University conduct and disseminate empirical research to improve STEM learning and teaching in higher education. This unique interdisciplinary program offers a Ph.D.
Coursework centers on:
- graduate-level courses in the discipline area
- a common core of STEM Education courses
- elective courses focused on research training.
An interdisciplinary team of faculty supervise the candidate's dissertation research, which will investigate teaching and learning within/across one or more STEM disciplines.
Although interdisciplinary in nature, graduate students in the STEM Education Ph.D. have an academic home in the STEM department/program of their discipline preference.
