Interested in majoring in education? Your designated major will be in liberal studies-education, and you'll choose from one of many concentrations. With a degree from Endicott's School of Education, you'll be prepared to be a well-rounded, results-driven leader in education. Our students are trained as future educators; through practical coursework and hands-on preparation, you'll be positioned to leave a lasting impact on the students you encounter through the lessons you teach.
You won't just learn how to teach-you'll be trained to become a collaborative practitioner with administration and school district partners, and you'll develop an understanding of strategies to help students learn and thrive.
In addition to coursework, extensive field experiences are a hallmark of our programs, beginning with internships in both freshman and sophomore years. We will work with you individually to ensure that your placements allow you to explore your interests and help you meet your goals. Students on the licensure tracks complete a pre-practicum field experience during the junior year and a teaching practicum in the senior year. You will also complete a literacy placement during your sophomore year and an English Language Learners placement junior year. There is also an option to add the moderate disabilities license (pk-8) by taking additional courses and meeting the MTEL requirements. All educational studies majors pursue a semester-long internship in the senior year.
The Fifth-Year Master of Education program and the highly successful Endicott Teaching Fellows program provide students with the opportunity to pursue outstanding graduate education and work experience in a single year after graduation.
