Have you ever thought about teaching?

Are you con­sid­er­ing trans­fer­ring to Bridge­wa­ter State University?

Bridge­wa­ter State Uni­ver­si­ty has a pro­gram to help stu­dents who are inter­est­ed in teach­ing sci­ence in the ele­men­tary schools or in high school, and Mas­sas­oit is work­ing with them to offer this pro­gram to select­ed Mas­sas­oit stu­dents who will trans­fer to BSU.

Intern­ships: These are paid intern­ships as a teacher’s assis­tant in a sum­mer sci­ence pro­gram for chil­dren and ado­les­cents, typ­i­cal­ly last­ing about 4 weeks in the sum­mer. There is often train­ing that is includ­ed and requires no fur­ther com­mit­ment on the part of the par­tic­i­pant. This is a good way of see­ing if work­ing with kids is appeal­ing. Appli­ca­tion dead­line: mid March.

Schol­ar­ships: Schol­ar­ships are giv­en to sci­ence majors trans­fer­ring to BSU. Appli­cants should have about 2 years left to their Bachelor’s degree and minor in edu­ca­tion (ele­men­tary or sec­ondary). It cov­ers all aca­d­e­m­ic expens­es, includ­ing tuition , fees, lab fees, books, etc. and is worth $20,000 for the two years. The pro­gram will help grad­u­ates find jobs as teach­ers. Par­tic­i­pants are then com­mit­ted to teach sci­ence in the pub­lic schools for a peri­od of time. Appli­ca­tion dead­line: August.

Also par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pro­gram are four pub­lic school dis­tricts. Oppor­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents also include vol­un­teer expe­ri­ences and pos­si­ble employ­ment in these schools.
