Spend a full academic year in the classroom while taking graduate courses, and get hands-on experience while earning a Master of Education degree and an Initial license to teach.
Accelerate your learning and immerse yourself in a classroom environment at the same time with Lesley's Collaborative Internship Program, a full-time, 14-month, field-based program offered in partnership with a number of independent and public schools in Massachusetts. In this summer-to-summer program, combine learning with hands-on experience by spending the day in a classroom while taking graduate courses at the school as well as at Lesley's campus in Cambridge. Under the supervision of experienced mentor teachers, you are actively involved in all aspects of school and classroom
life—developing interdisciplinary curricula, teaching various
disciplines, participating in student-parent conferences, and joining in
school activities. This Master's degree program leads to Initial licensure in either early childhood, elementary, middle school, or special education.
