The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is an exciting and innovative graduate program that prepares students to teach in Texas public schools. By exploring the roles of teacher as researcher, scholar-practitioner, and educational leader, the master's program cultivates a learning community of faculty and students through dialogue and critical inquiry. This program is designed for students who have earned an undergraduate degree but are not certified to teach. In addition to courses that explore educational research, curriculum, and instructional design, students receive certification through a certification sequence.
The learning outcomes of this 30-hour graduate degree program are based on the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education professional standards.
The MAT program accepts applications year-round. Applicants should apply a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of their desired semester of entry.
