The School of Education & Social Policy offers a 36-credit master’s of education in Middle School (5-8) or High School Education (8-12), with concentrations available in many content areas. Applicants will undergo a transcript review – from all undergraduate institutions – for appropriate subject matter knowledge prior to acceptance into the program. Completion of a teacher education program is one of the requirements for initial licensure from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
Beginning September 1, 2014, new students will follow the prescribed program listed below in conjunction with advisor approval. Students enrolled in the program prior to this date must meet with their advisor to review the remaining courses in their program.
All students must contact their academic advisor to be cleared for registration in future semesters.
