Graduate Program Chair

Wayne Whitfield, PhD

Program Description

Students who hold a bachelor’s degree and wish to become a secondary level (grades 5-12) teacher of technology/engineering education may complete this post baccalaureate licensure program. Once accepted, students will undergo a transcript review by the Graduate Program Chair. A plan of study will be developed that addresses:

• content courses missing (if any) in the subject that are equivalent to the requirements for the major as determined by the transcript review. Students will complete all requirements of the major and license as identified in the undergraduate program.
• pedagogy courses identified below in the teacher preparation program (professional courses). When courses are in a student’s plan of study, they will complete the courses at the undergraduate level or at the graduate level if the equivalent course is offered.

Once a student has completed all requirements for professional and content specific courses, they will be eligible for endorsement in their selected field through Fitchburg State University. When the licensure program is completed, students can request admission to the graduate program by completing additional admissions requirements as designated by the department.
