New England College is a creative and supportive learning community that challenges individuals to transform themselves and their world.
New England College (NEC) is recognized as one of America's "Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report. New England College has military benefits that may be available to students who are associated with the U.S. military. New England College emphasizes experiential learning as an essential component in the development of an enduring academic community. Building upon a strong liberal arts foundation, we challenge our students to reach their full potential through informed discourse and the pursuit of excellence in a framework of academic freedom.
The study of education at New England College contains two options: 1) Educational Studies and 2)
Teacher Certification. Upon entering the Education Program all students are considered to be Education
majors. Students choose either the Educational Studies path or the Certification path. In order to apply to
the Teacher Certification path students use the process described below. Students who decide that they
want to work in educational settings in roles other than state certified teachers (e.g. teaching assistants,
educators in the public sector – a museum, a not-for profit organization, educators in private schools, etc.)
may choose the Educational Studies path for their program. Students who choose the Educational Studies
portion of the program will work with their advisors and the Associate Dean of Education to tailor their
program to meet their career goals.
