Fitchburg State University’s Office of Graduate and Continuing Education will present a free webinar Tuesday, April 25 for visitors to learn more about its new initial licensure programs leading to the Master of Education in Middle School Education, launching in the fall of 2017.
Assistant Professor William G. Cortezia, graduate chair of early childhood, elementary and middle school education programs at Fitchburg State, will lead the 30-minute webinar along with Interim Dean of Graduate and Continuing Education Brian P. Bercier, GCE Advising Services and Support Coordinator Marylyn Gainan and Graduate Admissions Counselor Shelby Cota.
Participants will learn about curriculum, admissions, application requirements and more and will be eligible to have their admission application fee waived.
The webinar will be offered at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 25.
Fitchburg State’s revised Middle School M.Ed. will offer four initial licensure concentrations: English, history, mathematics and general science. It will be available as an online hybrid, low-residency format, and the MAT or GRE tests are not required for admission.
“The new middle school program will provide the candidate with a better understanding of what the needs are for the pre-adolescent in their academic and social development, as well as the individualized concentration,” Cortezia said.
