Welcome to the School of Education & Social Policy Graduate programs at Merrimack College. We strive to prepare our graduate students to become 21st century educators and leaders who are able to meet a variety of challenges.
The School of Education & Social Policy’s educator preparation programs are approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and as such provide education students (candidates) with an approved program which is a requirement for state licensure. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts participates in the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement which facilitates educator movement between states.
Students are responsible for researching and understanding requirement for licensure in other states, as program or licensure reciprocity recognition is different for each of the 50 states.
