Information about off-campus programs in Massachusetts, New England, and selected sites throughout the US.
If you live in Massachusetts, Maine, or New Hampshire, but not near Lesley's Cambridge campus, you can take advantage of one of our off-campus learning sites to take a Master of Education or licensure-only program leading to Initial licensure. Each program prepares you for classroom teaching, giving you a strong foundation in content and pedagogy.Take one course at a time in an eight-week semester, meeting just one weekend a month (Saturday and Sunday from 8 am-5 pm). Start and finish the program in a cohort—a close-knit community of students—building a network of colleagues and teachers you can stay connected to long after graduation.Designed for the busy adult, the weekend format allows you to continue working and managing personal obligations while earning your degree. You will know your schedule for the entire length of the program before you begin, allowing for easier planning. Classes usually take place at an area school. All programs listed are Master of Education unless otherwise indicated.For information on programs being offered now in New England, please contact Debbie Mosher at 978.973.1053 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lesley was the perfect choice for me because of the flexibility of the weekend courses. The professors were wonderful and understanding that the class consisted of full time teachers, mothers, grandmothers, etc. with many obligations. The classes were designed for working teachers. I was able to integrate new material in my classroom after every course. Well designed handouts, websites, etc. were always available to enrich the classes. I grew professionally through the Lesley University Master's Degree Program as I fully embraced change and was committed to learning about best practices in Education. Lesley presented information that was on the cutting edge of Education. I gained a confidence in myself that I was doing what was best for kids. And.....I had fun. The 18 month experience was years ago, but the relationships formed during that time are forever. Lesley University encourages teachers to be life long learners. This is a philosophy I totally embrace.
