Candidates who have already completed a four-year degree in a field other than education may elect to pursue the Masters of the Arts of Teaching, or M.A.T. This is a two-phase program; phase one leads to initial licensure, and phase two offers candidates the opportunity to attain an advanced degree in education. The M.A.T. program was created for the working student and features small class sizes, a supportive atmosphere, a customized and flexible course of study, and evening classes.
Candidates who complete all licensure requirements are “Highly Qualified” to teach.
