Master of Education

Teacher Education is a major function of the college in both its undergraduate and graduate programs. The teacher education programs at Eastern Nazarene College incorporate the newest methods of teacher preparation which are gaining increasing support throughout the United States. The teacher preparation programs at ENC equip teacher candidates with a thorough knowledge of the foundations of education, learning theory, motivation theory, lesson planning, integration of technology into the K-12 curriculum, and child development. Students immediately observe the application of knowledge learned in class in the pre-practicum. This opportunity occurs prior to student teaching, which is the culminating experience for the education student.

The requirements for state licensure can be very confusing to the student seeking an appropriate program. Our advisors will meet with each student to design an individual program whether the student is seeking initial or professional licensure.

ENC's education programs are all fully approved and certified by the Massachusetts Department of Education. The programs, in fact, exceed the state licensure requirements.

Students interested in pursuing a teaching career must gain licensure from the state where they will be employed. Each state's licensure requirements differ, but graduates of Eastern Nazarene College who have completed the graduate teacher education program are eligible to be licensed in over 30 states because ENC is an approved member of the Interstate Certification Compact.
