- If you are pursuing a graduate certificate for professional licensure or endorsement in Massachusetts, you will need to submit your bachelor’s and master’s transcripts with a copy of your initial license.
We’ll help you get started by gathering your transcripts for you — and we’ll even pay any fees to get copies for you.
Completion of the Science in Education Online Graduate Certificate program will not provide an endorsement or teaching license through Lesley University. It is your responsibility to understand and comply with the licensure requirements for the state in which you seek to be licensed.
If you currently hold a Master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution and a Massachusetts initial teaching license in elementary education, elementary education general science, middle school general science, or middle school math/science, you may be able to identify 12 credits within this program in the content or subject matter knowledge of your license to apply for a professional teaching license. It is your responsibility to review the content or subject matter knowledge of your license(s). For additional information, please visit our Certification Office’s website.
If you are interested in becoming a teacher and pursuing Massachusetts initial licensure, please contact our Office of Graduate Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
