Licensure Only

Gordon's graduate licensure only program provides an excellent opportunity for you to become initially licensed to teach in Massachusetts and any of the 46 member states and territories of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) based on the Interstate Agreement. Graduates of this program are eligible to obtain an initial license in Educational Leadership or Reading.

In many of the member states, the candidate seeking licensure will be required to pass examinations, such as the Praxis, in order to receive a teaching license. Teacher candidates should check with the department of education in the states in which a license is desired to ascertain information concerning what tests are required. Licensure in non-member states can be obtained on the basis of a transcript approval process. Some additional course work may be required in those states.
