2018-2019 Graduate Academic Catalog

Licensure Only: High School Education (8-12) 25 credits

Lesley University's High School Education (8-12) programs of study are approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for Initial Teacher License in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the following subject areas: Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, English, History, Mathematics, Physics, and Political Science/Political Philosophy.

As early in each program as possible, and before the practicum, students must complete a 75-hour early field experience in a classroom appropriate to the license sought. In some cases, recent appropriate classroom experience may be used to document this requirement. (This is not a credit-bearing course, and there are no fees required.)

Program Prerequisite:

Completion of a college or university's requirements for a major in the subject area for which Initial teacher license is sought.

Practicum Prerequisites:

Successful completion of a 75-hour early field experience and required pre-practicum courses; satisfactory completion of appropriate Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) requirements. These full-time, full-semester experiences are accompanied by a weekly seminar and require a field experience fee.
