Health and Consumer Science Concentration
Those pursuing a career in teaching enroll in the state certified and nationally accredited health and consumer science concentration that prepares students to become teachers of elementary or secondary health/family and consumer science education. Candidates for teacher certification in Massachusetts must take and pass the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL). A unique opportunity is afforded the prospective teacher to gain practical experience with students in public school settings through courses with pre-practicum components. A Teacher Licensure Program (TLP) for those individuals who hold a baccalaureate degree and would like to obtain a Massachusetts Initial License to teach health education (Health/Family and Consumer Sciences PreK-12) is offered.
