Graduate Programs

Teacher Education Fellowship

  • Graduate Education Fellowship Information Session


    Wednesday, October 28, 2015, 6:00 - 7:30 pm

    Murray Lounge, Sakowich Campus Center

    Learn more about Merrimack’s Graduate Education Fellowship Programs at our Information Session. Talk with our program directors, hear more about admission requirements and how to apply, and more.

The Teacher Education Fellowship links graduate study with a yearlong clinical residency in a PreK-12 partner school.   

Residencies allow Teacher Fellows to engage in a range of classroom-based activities including small group instruction, co-teaching, and ultimately, independent classroom instruction. Students work in a school district for a full academic year, gaining unparalleled and invaluable field experience.

Teacher Education Fellows take summer courses to prepare for their residency and then transition to evening classes while participating in their classrooms.  After completing their coursework, residency, and a portfolio project, Teacher Education Fellows graduate with a Master of Education (M.Ed.) and licensure in their area of specialization.
