About

If you’re looking for a career change and are interested in becoming a teacher, the Teaching program of Texas Woman's University could be the answer.

Overview

Teachers are in demand

Teaching could not only be a rewarding career for you personally, but also could fill a great need for teachers throughout Texas and the nation. Reports indicate the national teacher shortage is growing larger. In Texas, the state education agency has identified teacher shortage areas — most of which are options in both the MAT and Certification-only programs — as well as loan forgiveness opportunities.

MAT Degree Program

If you have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education, you can gain initial teacher certification and earn a graduate degree at the same time. The MAT degree meets teacher certification standards set by the Texas State Board for Educator Certification and is accredited by the Texas Education Agency. The Teaching program of Texas Woman's University provides a high quality education within a flexible framework that enables you to balance the demands of both your personal and professional life. The MAT degree program is a hybrid-type degree, meaning courses are predominantly online with some on-campus classes.

All courses are taught by faculty members who have years of experience in every aspect of teaching. The program produces teachers who have strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills by focusing on:

  • The multiple roles of a teacher as a researcher/scholar/practitioner
  • Theory- and research-based practices for curriculum design and instruction
  • Increased content knowledge needed for instruction
  • Application of appropriate technology in education
  • Assessment of teaching and learning
  • Understanding of socio-cultural and learning differences among students
  • Collaborative leadership to improve schools
