About

Students enrolled in the Science Education 11-month, full-time program at Boston University prepare for Massachusetts initial teacher licensure and further strengthen their skills and knowledge in their chosen academic fields.

Overview

Key facts

Students of the Science Education program offered by Boston University complete courses in professional education, additional graduate courses in their content areas, and a student-teaching experience.

Full-time students typically begin during Summer Term 2 and graduate the following spring. Full-time students may also begin in September and complete the program the following summer. It is also possible to complete the degree over a longer time period as a part-time student.

Add-On License in Teaching English Language Learners (ESL)

The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages) Program offers a six-course, 26-credit add-on license pathway that allows MAT students in content-specific areas (e.g., English Education, Social Studies Education, Mathematics Education, and Science Education to meet requirements for a Massachusetts licensure endorsement as Teacher of English Language Learners (ESL). In this course of study, students are exposed to a theoretical introduction to the nature and structure of language, key factors affecting second-language acquisition, and communicative approaches to the teaching of English as a second or foreign language. In addition to the six courses, students are required to complete an ESL Practicum. This pathway requires MAT candidates to add one additional summer and part-time semester to their regular MAT program timeline.
