WOODROW WILSON ACADEMY OF TEACHING AND LEARNING
The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is reinventing teacher education for the 21st century. The Academy offers a competency-based master’s degree in education leading towards an initial teacher license at the secondary level (middle and high school) in the following areas:
- biology (through the Amgen Biology Program)
Teacher candidates progress through a problem-based, individualized, adaptive curriculum by mastery of core competencies. Teacher candidates become eligible for graduation and initial licensure when they demonstrate proficiency in all of the competencies through completion of the challenges, fulfilled requisite clinical experiences, and satisfied Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ initial licensure requirements, including passing the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL).
Applications are usually do in October, November, and February.

- admission to a master's degree program at a partner university
- preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
- extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
- generous financial stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus in Georgia and Pennsylvania. (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
- support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
- support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education
- lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders
