Take the next step to becoming a teacher who makes a difference
in the classroom.
Our rigorous Initial licensure Master of Education, Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study, and licensure-only programs are
combined with a high level of faculty support to prepare you to make a lasting impact on student achievement starting on your first day in the
classroom. Through our comprehensive
assessment system, we offer continuous assistance in your progress toward
state and professional competencies, and feedback throughout your program. Our Field Placement Office will also assist you with your early field experience and practicum (student teaching) placements.All programs are approved by
the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and offer courses
that concentrate on pedagogical and content area skills, online portfolio development, field experiences that prepare you for your own
classroom, and preparation for the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure
(MTELs). Also, to ensure that our graduates are prepared to teach English Language Learners, we require a Sheltered English Instruction course or documentation of passing a similar state approved course, passed the SEI MTEL, or possess a valid ESL/ELL license. For more information »
If you are looking for an intensive, 14-month teacher residency program leading to a Master's degree and Initial licensure, please see the Collaborative Internship Program: Teacher Residencies for a program in either Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle School, High School, or Special Education. We also offer the Elementary Education Urban Initiative, an accelerated program that puts you in an urban school district for a year while taking classes toward your degree.
