Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA)

MCLA is the Commonwealth's public liberal arts college. Our campus, part of the Massachusetts State University system, is nestled in the culturally rich and scenic Berkshires in North Adams, Mass.

We prepare teachers for licensure to teach in the public school systems and early childhood educators who want to meet the requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) under the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS)

Highlights:

The Bachelor of Arts Interdisciplinary Studies: Children, Families and Society program is designed for early childhood educators who have work experience in the field and hold an Associates Degree (45 - 64 transfer credits). The program uses a cohort model designed for the adult learner who is managing work and family demands. In completing this degree, students will be prepared to work in an array of early care and education programs. The Bachelor of Science offers programs leading to licensure of teachers wishing to teach in a range of academic settings including early childhood. The program provides a balanced blend of theory and practice so students will graduate with a solid foundation to begin a teaching career. Students seeking licensure must complete a major program in liberal arts or sciences and a state-approved license program in education.
