The Education Department offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs in professional education. Students can become licensed to teach in early childhood (PK-2) with and without disabilities, elementary (1-6), middle (5-8), or secondary (8-12) schools or credentialed to teach in preschool and day care programs. The Department programs offer a blending of classroom and fieldwork approaches. Kappa Delta Pi, the International Honor Society in education, is available to outstanding upper-division students. Graduate programs provide opportunities for students to prepare for careers in Reading, Educational Administration, Moderate Special Needs and School Psychology, as well as in Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle, or Secondary Education.

To teach in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts a teaching license is required. The Worcester State University Teacher Education program is recognized by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education as having an approved program in the fields of Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Middle School Education and Secondary School Education. Students in the Elementary and Early Childhood Education programs have two complete majors, one in the content area and one in education. The Middle and Secondary school programs have a major in content and a minor in education. The Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL) is embedded in the program at various stages and must be passed for completion of the program and licensure.
