Interdisciplinary Studies Major for Middle School Education


Middle School Education majors in the Mathematics-Science, General Science, Humanities, and History concentrations also complete an Interdisciplinary Studies major. They select a minor and two cluster/concentration areas that correspond to the license they are seeking as defined by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Students will select the areas with the guidance of their Education advisor in Interdisciplinary Studies in order to remain in compliance with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education licensure requirements for a middle school teacher.

Students are required to have a university approved minor (18 semester hours) in Biology, Math, History, or English Literature that corresponds to the license they are seeking and a minimum of 9 semester hours in each of 2 clusters in
two areas outside of their minor. Students will select courses in each cluster with the guidance of their advisor to ensure they meet course prerequisite requirements and licensure content competencies. Additional semester hours within one of the areas may be needed to fulfill current content competencies and licensure requirements.
