Important Changes in Teacher Certification Regulations Recent changes in the process of obtaining a teaching license from the Massachusetts Department of Education may have a significant impact on Mount Holyoke students who wish to pursue a teaching license as part of their undergraduate degree. Note: The state of Massachusetts will discontinue the license in social studies at the middle or secondary level as of October 1, 2003. Any current student who will graduate after May 2003 and wants to teach in a middle or high school social studies department should consider a major in history and should pursue a license in history. A major in politics and a license in political science may also be a possibility. Consult with Sandra Lawrence in the psychology and education department for advice about alternatives to the social studies license. Students wishing to pursue a teaching license in a subject area other than biology, history, mathematics, English, early childhood, or elementary education will no longer be able to obtain those licenses through Mount Holyoke. This change means, for example, that the option to pursue teaching licenses through "individual programs," such as those in art, music, foreign language, chemistry, earth science, etc., will no longer be possible. All students affected by this change should consult with Sandra Lawrence, as well. Students pursuing licenses in elementary education and graduating after May 2003 will have to include coursework in history, literature, geography, and economics as part of their undergraduate degree. See Anita Page in the psychology and education department for advice about these courses.
