Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM+) 

Courses meeting the STEM+ requirement will typically have prerequisites from the Master Quantitative Problem Solving (QPS), Study the Natural World (SNW), or Understand Technology (TECH) areas. Such courses will require students to cover material in the STEM area at deeper level than the introductory Versatility courses. 

Learning Outcomes for “Pursue Advanced Knowledge”
1. Students must use the skills expected from their Versatility courses to study and practice them in greater depth, with further study applied to the area in which they are certified.  

Standards for “Pursue Advanced Knowledge”
1. Certified courses must expect students to practice the skills they learned in their Versatility courses in greater depth. These courses must have prerequisites from among the Versatility categories and will typically be at the 200-400 level.

As of December 2013, the courses below have been certified as meeting the learning objectives and standards for the STEM+ category.
