A STEM Designated Degree

What does it mean to be a STEM-designated program?

The STEM or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics designation refers to classes and degrees that fall into these categories.  As the United States becomes even more reliant on technology and STEM related advancements, there is a shortfall of educated and qualified graduates to work in STEM positions.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) classifies careers in STEM fields as some of the highest growth and highest paying jobs in the future. For a competitive advantage, graduates with a STEM education and background could be well sought after.
