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

Focusing on teaching, scholarship, and service, the College of Education offers both a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Master of Education. The College of Education's conceptual framework forms a foundation for innovative, interdisciplinary, and research-based curricula dedicated to the development of reflective practitioners who demonstrate expertise in knowledge and practice.

The M.A.T. is appropriate only for individuals who do NOT hold any teaching certification. This program is designed for persons interested in acquiring initial teaching skills of students with mild/moderate disabilities at the elementary/secondary education levels along the special education continuum of placements.
