About the Program
To accommodate working individuals, classes meet two weekday evenings per week until student teaching. Courses are taken as a cohort group with coursework beginning in the fall semester. At the completion of the Elementary Education program at Oakland University, students will be eligible for a Michigan standard teaching certificate (grades K-8), as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching degree. For individuals whose prior coursework does not fulfill a teachable major and/or minor, additional undergraduate courses may be required for admission. This coursework must be completed prior to admission to the MATEE program.
Teachable Majors and Minors
All students must select and complete one of the following majors: Language Arts, Integrated Science, Math or Social Studies. You can view the course requirements for each major. Prior coursework will be considered, but you must have an official transcript review done to determine eligibility for the program.
Field Experiences and Student Teaching
One of the primary benefits of Oakland University’s teacher preparation program is field experiences provided in local school districts. Participants receive varied experiences working with school-age children and have an opportunity to apply coursework to the teaching environment as they learn it.
