Westfield State is a fraction of the cost of other universities. We're currently offering a teacher incentive discount, which is a reduced rate for those enrolled in our education programs.
Our Education Programs/Coursework
At the graduate level, master’s degrees have been especially designed for new and experienced teachers. Licensure at the initial level is a prerequisite for entry into many programs in the graduate program group. For teachers with professional licensure, the Master of Education concentration programs offer an opportunity to enhance established skills and interests and to experiment with areas of study related to the professional license.
