2023-2024 Graduate Academic Catalog

Twelve-Credit Option for Professional License

For those who already hold a master's degree and a Massachusetts Initial teacher license, 12 credits of appropriate graduate coursework in the subject matter knowledge of the Initial license can be used to meet part of the requirements for the Professional license in that same field. This is an individual option listed in the Massachusetts state regulations. Those interested in taking advantage of this option should consult with an academic advisor in the Graduate School of Education before enrolling in courses.
