Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.)


Student receives feedback from professorOur students believe in the possibilities for all children and the role of the teacher in realizing and expanding these possibilities. Teacher candidates in our M.A.T. programs learn and practice both the science and the art of teaching. Our graduate students apply the theories and strategies of teaching and learning in activities with their instructors and peers as well as through school-based field experiences and student teaching. Our graduates are thus prepared to empower learners, families and communities across a variety of settings, context and curricula.

We offer the M.A.T. in a number of areas, including Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Secondary English, Secondary Social Studies and Special Education. Our programs provide a core of knowledge, skills and field-based experiences with performance assessments designed to develop the teacher’s ability to impact student learning.

All of our M.A.T. programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (N.C.A.T.E.), and each program is further approved or recognized by state or other national agencies or organizations.
