Take your teaching career to the next level.
Under current Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary
Education regulations, after five years of teaching with an initial
license, teachers must meet the requirements for professional licensure
(the final level of teaching license). For those who do hold master's
degrees, the Simmons Certificate requires 12 credits of graduate level
coursework, nine of which must be in the appropriate subject area.
Our supportive academic community offers small classes, faculty mentors,
and weekend and evening classes designed to accommodate the schedules of
working teachers. You'll work with an advisor to develop an individualized
program of study designed to meet your educational goals.
