Our teacher preparation and initial licensure program leading to a master of arts in teaching is the only one 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.
Master's in Teaching (M.A.T.)
Our intensive one-year program begins in May. By August, and for the remainder of the program, you will be fully immersed at one of six partner schools in the Worcester Public Schools system, guided by faculty engaged in research into new approaches to teaching and learning.
