As a teacher, you can make a difference, and the Education major at Springfield College opens doors so you can do so. Students start by learning about the subject they’re interested in teaching. As they become upperclass students, they then apply to the appropriate teacher licensure program, which will prepare them for their future as a teacher.

Overview

We provide students with the skills needed to teach special education, as well as elementary, middle, and high school students in several different subject areas, depending upon the licensure program they choose. Students will gain experience working in the classroom in our partner schools located throughout the city of Springfield and the surrounding area.

Our students are highly sought after upon graduation. They teach in public and private schools, and at the elementary and secondary levels throughout the world.

To comply with Massachusetts Department of Education regulations, students seeking teacher licensure must earn a bachelor’s degree that includes an arts and sciences major, additional coursework to meet the subject matter knowledge requirements, and coursework to meet the professional standards for all teachers. Students completing any of the programs listed above also complete the requirements of the education major.

Careers and Internships

Through our various education majors, you won’t just spend time learning in the classroom; you’ll also spend time leading a classroom. That’s because we offer student-teaching opportunities during your undergraduate education that will prepare you for your career.

Upon graduation, our education students succeed. In a survey of our 2014-15 graduates, 100 percent of our education students who responded reported either being employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation.
