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. 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.

Program States Where Program Meets Licensure Requirements States Where Eligibility for Licensure Has Yet to Be Determined
Architecture Massachusetts All Other States
Art Education Massachusetts All Other States

As more fully remote students apply to attend these programs from states other than MA, requirements for these states will be reviewed and updated in this table over time.

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.
