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 initial teaching license 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 Hiatt Center professional-development 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.

Graduate Requirements

Each middle- and secondary-level student takes an additional course corresponding to her or his teaching field and/or courses focused on teaching at the middle or secondary level.
