Our teacher preparation and initial licensure program leading to a Master of Arts in teaching is the first teacher preparation program to earn approval with distinction from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Whichever grade level you wish to teach — elementary, middle, or high school — you’ll be prepared to address the special challenges of instructing young people in an urban setting.
