The Program

About the Degree

The Woodrow Wilson Graduate School of Teaching & Learning has reimagined teacher education by designing a master’s degree program based on real-world scenarios, practice, and a skills and knowledge-based approach to learning.

The WW Graduate School has identified a core group of competencies—skills, knowledge, and dispositions—that teachers need to succeed in the classroom. Master’s candidates’ level of mastery in these competencies is measured throughout the project-based coursework—called challenges—as well as during classroom—or clinical—practice.

To graduate with a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.) and licensure in high school biology (through the Amgen Biology Program), high school chemistry, or middle or high school mathematics, candidates must complete each of the challenges, prove proficiency in all of the competencies, fulfill a clinical practice requirement, and satisfy the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ initial licensure (certification) requirements, including passing the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL).

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ licensure (certification) can be transferred to outside states on a state-by-state basis. More information on reciprocity can be found through the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) website.
