Field of Knowledge Review

Students seeking initial licensure through our Master of Arts in Teaching program will need to submit a Field of Knowledge review that outlines the academic coursework, professional experience, and any volunteer experience in the area you would like to seek licensure in.  This helps us ensure that you will be well prepared with the appropriate subject matter knowledge to successfully pass the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) for your license area.

It is normal for students to have gaps; students work with their advisor to identify the best way to address any gaps they might have.
