2020-2021 Graduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Education - Fifth Year Program (Master of Education)


Through a year of full-time study, beginning immediately after completion of the undergraduate degree, students are able to complete their M.Ed. within a year.  Applicants holding a bachelor’s degree from another institution may also apply to Endicott’s 5th year M.Ed. programs.

Endicott Teaching Fellows Program

This year-long program provides students the opportunity to gain classroom experience and complete a master’s degree in a single year. Teaching Fellows start their master’s-level courses in summer and continue to take courses throughout the school year. In September, they begin work in a partnering district and continue to intern full-time during the year. Fellows who seek an initial license complete practicum hours in the role of the license they are pursuing. Fellows receive continuous guidance and support from veteran teachers, Endicott supervisors, and education advisors. In exchange for one academic year of teaching, the district agrees to pay the equivalent of full graduate program tuition for their Teaching Fellow. Housing, health insurance and other living expenses are the responsibility of the student.

International Applicants for Graduate Admission

Educational documents in a foreign language are required to be translated into English.
