Bridgewater’s history dates back to 1840, when Horace Mann established the first permanently sited teacher education program in the country. Today, the College of Education and Allied Studies extends this tradition by offering a range of programs designed for undergraduate students who wish to work in education or human services, as well as a myriad of graduate programs for educators seeking career advancement by adding an additional area of certification or earning a graduate degree. Bridgewater educates more teachers than any other state university in Massachusetts. Our mission is to foster powerful learning experiences and prepare highly skilled and compassionate professionals to have meaningful impact in rapidly changing and increasingly challenging educational and service environments.
All juniors, seniors and graduate students in the College of Education and Allied Studies (CEAS) are required to obtain and use a Bridgewater State University approved tablet device. In today’s modern classrooms, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, sports and leisure facilities, and counseling centers, tablet use is prolific. To serve and meet the needs of the future students, clients and athletes, it is imperative that CEAS students are proficient in the use of tablets and related technologies. Therefore, Bridgewater State University approved tablet devices are required for all CEAS juniors, seniors and graduate students and will be utilized throughout their programs.
