Master of Arts in Teaching
The Master of Arts in Teaching is a non-traditional program designed to accommodate working adults who have an undergraduate degree. No graduate credit may be transferred to the MAT programs.
The MAT K-6 is designed for individuals who have an undergraduate degree in a field other than elementary education and who desire a degree and/or licensure at the K-6 level.
The MAT 7-12 is designed for individuals who have an undergraduate degree in one of the following content areas of study:
- Speech Communication
The GRE or MAT test is required for admissions. Additionally, passing scores on the Praxis I Core Academic Skills Exam (reading, writing, and math) are required by the completion of six hours in the program and a passing score on the Praxis II Content Knowledge test must be submitted to the School of Education before the completion of 12 semester hours of coursework. If a test is not passed by the required deadline, the candidate has one semester to provide a passing score, at which time the candidate may continue coursework. Other required Praxis II tests must be passed prior to clinical practice (student teaching).
