Technology Education Licensure Track Concentration

The Technology Education Licensure Track Concentration prepares students for careers in teaching. This is done with an underpinning in science and technology reinforced with the methods of teaching and pedagogy. In the Licensure Track, candidates must complete two stage reviews in order to proceed in this concentration.

The Stage 1 Review requires the candidate to pass the Massachusetts Test for Education Licensure (MTEL) in “Literacy and Communication”. A successful Stage 1 Review permits the candidate to enroll in the Sheltered English Immersion and Special Education for Adolescents (14-22) with Disabilities courses.

The Stage 2 Review requires the candidate to pass the Massachusetts Test for Education Licensure (MTEL) in their “Content Area”. A successful Stage 2 Review permits the candidate to enroll in the Practicum I and Practicum II courses.

The Licensure Track concentration meets the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Initial 5-12 Teacher Licensure requirements.
