University rank #57 (QS) , RI,
Brown's Master of Arts in Teaching program is a one-year program that prepares future educators to understand fundamental principles of teaching and learning, and to apply that understanding to work effectively with children, families, and communities.


Intentionally small in size, the program seeks to ensure that future teachers learn best practices in curriculum design and instruction. Student teachers are encouraged to seek constructive feedback, take risks, engage with colleagues in exploring sensitive issues, and explore opportunities for personal and professional growth. The elementary and secondary M.A.T. programs are dedicated to the idea that teaching is creative and intellectually serious work. Those who are introduced to the craft of teaching at Brown are immersed in a community of education scholars and practitioners engaged in national and local efforts to improve education and the teaching profession. That community includes Education Department faculty and staff, the Education Alliance, and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform.
