Completion of this program allows graduate students to qualify for initial licensure at both the elementary and secondary levels.

Through a variety of comprehensive courses embedded with sequential field-based experiences, students enrolled in this program will be prepared to meet the requirements for Massachusetts Teacher Licensure through a variety of comprehensive courses. When combined with program prerequisites, the obtained knowledge and skills enable the candidates in the graduate program to successfully teach physical education in grades PreK-12.
