Educator Licensure

Students seeking educator licensure to teach in public schools should refer to the information provided by the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development’s Professional Preparation office. Please access that information using this link.

While undergraduate educator licensure can be obtained for BU’s dual and double degree programs that CAS and Wheelock College cosponsor in science and mathematics, starting in the fall of 2021, all other licenses will be acquired through successful completion of an approved graduate degree. Please note, if you entered your undergraduate educator licensure program at BU Wheelock prior to the fall of 2021, you will be able to complete your current licensure program.

Teacher candidates must meet specific requirements to be able to be endorsed for Massachusetts educator licensure by the Professional Preparation office at the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development.

Contact the Professional Preparation office at or 617-353-3239 for an appointment to discuss your program of study leading to endorsement for licensure and to receive additional information.
