The Graduate Group in Science and Mathematics Education (informally know as SESAME) is an interdisciplinary graduate program leading to a doctoral degree in science, mathematics, or engineering education. The program is designed to produce graduates who have advanced expertise in a scientific discipline as well as in educational theory and research methodologies.
This Graduate Group was established so individuals with training or experience in a mathematical, scientific, or technical discipline could pursue advanced studies focused on educational issues in these disciplines. SESAME produces scholars who can communicate effectively with scientists and engineers as well as with educational researchers and practitioners. SESAME students are expected to obtain at least masters-level competency in their mathematical or scientific discipline.
