The Master of Education in Elementary Education programs prepare candidates to work in grades 1-6. Through coursework and field expe- riences, students develop understanding of subject matter knowledge, curriculum design, instructional strategies, observation and assessment, communication, and collaboration with families and the community. The Master of Education programs in Elementary Education are designed in two tracks: 1) a 24-credit post-baccalaureate program that leads to Initial Licensure and an optional 12 additional credit program to obtain a Master’s degree in Elementary Education, 2) a 36-credit Appropriate Master’s Degree Program that leads to Initial Licensure.
A passing score on the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) prior to enrolling in the practicum is required.
Upon completion of the program, students will:
• Demonstrate skill in planning curriculum and instruction, delivering effective instruction, managing classroom climate, promoting equity and meeting professional standards
• Demonstrate knowledge of and approach to the academic content of lessons
