Polk State College and Florida Southern College have established an articulation agreement that allows eligible Polk State graduates to seamlessly enroll in a Florida Southern School of Education master’s degree program.
The agreement, signed last month and effective immediately, enables Polk State College graduates with Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (K-6) and Early Childhood Education (Pre-K to 3) degrees to enroll in the Master of Education in Collaborative Teaching and Learning (M.Ed.) and Master of Education in Educational Leadership (M.Ed.L.) programs. This agreement will produce highly qualified teachers and administrators, enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in Central Florida.
In order to qualify, students must have a 3.0 GPA and hold or be eligible for a Florida professional teaching certificate. Successful applicants are exempt from several FSC admission requirements, including an application fee. In addition, applicants receive a free tuition voucher upon enrolling in the final required course in the master’s program.
The Florida Southern Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Collaborative Teaching and Learning degree program is designed to further the knowledge and skills of classroom teachers. The Master of Education (M.Ed.L.) in Educational Leadership degree program is designed for teachers who hope to explore roles in educational leadership or administration.
“Our masters’ degrees are designed to help qualified teachers become even better at the demanding task of educating young people. We believe the Polk State graduates who enter our program will be examples of excellence in their profession,” she said.
