Professional Licensure Programs at MassARt

Professional Licensure and Certification Requirements

  • Professional licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state. Licensure and certification in one state do not guarantee automatic licensure in another state. MassArt offers courses and programs that may lead to professional licensure or certification in states outside of Massachusetts. MassArt has not made a determination that its curriculum meets State educational requirements for licensure or certification in states outside of Massachusetts.

  • Students in programs that lead (or may lead) to out-of-state licensure or certification should speak to their MassArt Academic Advisors and/or Program Directors about licensure requirements.

  • At this time, MassArt cannot confirm if programs meet the prerequisites for professional licensure or certification outside of Massachusetts.

The following programs at the Institution lead to professional licensure. Below find a chart of the programs, and webpages which provide specific licensure information, and contact information for professional licensure agencies in these fields.
