Our post-baccalaureate secondary education concentration can prepare you for the initial teaching license from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the content area of your bachelor’s degree. We offer flexible scheduling to meet your needs, so you’ll be able to graduate in one to two years ready to work in regular and alternative school settings.

Inquiry-based teaching methods, standards-based curriculum development, and team-building strategies that enhance relationships with individual, groups, and families are the cornerstones of our program, which also features a year-long residency in a local secondary or middle school classroom. Coursework is designed to help educators address the complex social and emotional environments of their learners as they begin their transition to adulthood.

A prerequisite for this program is a bachelor’s degree in math, English, political science, history, chemistry, biology, earth science, visual arts, or a related field.
