Vocational Technical Education Degree (B.S.E.)

Why Choose Vocational Technical Education?

This is a Bachelor of Science in Education (Vocational) for teachers of trades. The students in this program later are employed either in their trade area, or in a vocational technical school, or in a comprehensive high school. Since the students in this program are employed during the day, the program is offered on a part time basis in the evening. In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts a conferred degree is not a requirement for teaching a trade in a vocational school.
