Aspiring HFA Teachers Invited to 4+1 Program Info Sessions from College of Education
Interested in teaching junior or high school? Learn how you can earn your master's degree and teaching license at UMass through a 4+1 program in the College of Education through its upcoming virtual info sessions on Nov. 14 at 4 p.m., Nov. 28 at noon, and Dec. 5 at 4 p.m.
The College of Education 4+1 programs are ideal for HFA students who wish to teach, including students majoring in Afro-American Studies; English; history; Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies; and more.
4+1 programs give students the option to earn their bachelor's degree and master's degree in as little as 5 years. They allow you to transfer some of the credits you earn as an undergraduate student to your master's degree, which saves you money on tuition. In the College of Education, our 4+1 programs immerse you in a local school so you gain in-depth teaching experience as well.
The College of Education has several programs for reaching this goal:
- Secondary Education 4+1 Program. This program is for students who want to become middle or high school teachers.
- Elementary Education 4+1 Program This program is for students who want to become elementary school teachers.
No matter which program you choose, your coursework is grounded in principles of social justice education, so you have the skills and knowledge to transform the world for the better. Compassionate faculty provide individualized guidance for you, too, to help you reach your goals.
