In support of Northern Marianas College’s commitment to the health and safety of its campus community, the College has announced that beginning in the Fall 2021 semester, the COVID-19 vaccination would be part of the health clearance requirements for students who are enrolled in face-to-face or in-person classes.

The vaccination requirement allows NMC to offer a fuller range of in-person campus experiences in the fall, including co-curricular activities and events. Additionally, vaccination remains the most effective way to protect those who are not able to receive vaccination (children under age 12 and those who are medically exempted) and to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end. Further, the vaccine requirement furthers the CNMI’s goal of reaching herd immunity against the COVID-19 virus.

Northern Marianas College is accepting applications for a Master of Education Degree with a concentration in International Teaching from Framingham State University.

Framingham State University, in partnership with International Education Programs Inc., a non-profit education organization in Massachusetts, has been offering graduate degree programs abroad for almost 30 years now.

The Master of Education Degree program with a concentration in International Teaching has been offered at NMC for 20 years, with more than 300 educators graduating from the program. The most recent cohort of educators to undertake this degree program received their degrees in May of last year and the current cohort will be receiving their degrees this Fall 2021.

Framingham's Master of Education Degree with a Concentration in International Teaching is a special program that was developed for teachers working in American and international schools abroad. The program consists of nine four-credit graduate courses in education, and the successful completion of a comprehensive portfolio.

The curriculum was specifically designed to meet the needs of a diverse teacher population, addressing major education topics and issues relevant to all instructional levels. The courses provide a background in educational foundations and philosophy, instructional strategies, curriculum design, research, and the teaching of English as a second language. These on-site graduate programs provide affordable, accredited advanced degrees for educators.

School superintendents, principals, special education directors, and school counselors are among the very experienced cadre of instructors utilized in these specialized courses. Framingham State University is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

The new cohort for the Master of Education degree program is set to begin in the fall semester of 2021 once it meets the minimum enrollment. Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 courses will be held online for all of Framingham International sites including Saipan.  More information on the admissions process may be obtained by emailing Diana B.
