Master of Arts in Teaching, MAT


Graduate Program
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program is designed for full-time students (including undergraduates who qualify for the accelerated B.A./M.A. program) seeking the Education Initial Teacher Licensure  at either the elementary, middle, or secondary levels. It begins in spring/summer and extends through the following academic year. Students enter as part of a cohort team that is guided through the program by university and school mentors. They are placed with a teacher mentor in one of the Adam Institute/Hiatt Center partner schools at the beginning of the academic year and take the equivalent of 10 courses, including the teaching practicum, determined by and based on their prior course work and planned teaching level.
