Secondary Education (with content area)

Chestnut Hill College’s master’s program in Secondary Education integrates theory and practice concerning the cognitive, social and educational development of students in secondary education programs. The program reflects contemporary research and scholarship in education and incorporates strategies to meet the needs of special populations, such as students with disabilities and diverse cultures. The course of study also takes into consideration the strengths, needs and interests of individual candidates.

Teacher candidates in the Secondary Education program select a content area of concentration. Prerequisite course evaluations are conducted upon the receipt of an application for admission into the Secondary Education teacher certification program. All official transcripts from institutions attended are reviewed for course content appropriate to the desired certification area. Applicants missing prerequisite coursework will be given course recommendations required for admission into Secondary Education teacher certification programs.
