What’s New - Graduate Catalog

Standardized tests are no longer required as part of the admissions process for graduate programs at Fitchburg State University.

non-licensure option has been added for the M.Ed. in Middle School Education. The non-licensure concentration in the M.Ed. in Middle School Education program is designed for teachers who already hold licensure, or who do not need to earn their initial license in one of the four content areas available at Fitchburg State University, but who are interested in learning the art and science of teaching students at the middle and secondary levels. The program is carefully designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to meet the educational challenges of the middle school pedagogy.

The new Autism Spectrum Disorders Graduate Certificate Program is designed to provide licensed educators with specialized knowledge and skills in order to meet the unique and complex needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Educators who hold a teaching license at the Initial or Professional level who have at least three credits related to special education are eligible to apply for this certificate program. This program will lead to an Autism Endorsement for Educator Licensure through the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
