The School of Education, Health and Human Performance, content methodologists across campus, and PK-12 educators in the FSU Professional Development Schools Partnership collaborate to prepare teacher candidates with the knowledge and skills for curriculum and planning, learners and the learning environment, teaching, professional self-renewal, and engagement across the school community that distingushes high quality teachers.
In addition to preparing graduates to meet West Virginia licensure requirements and obtain certification in secondary content areas and comprehensive fields, the Master of Arts in Teaching program provides candidates with an interdisciplinary and integrated curriculum, intensive field experiences and clinical practice, and ongoing assessment that increases their employability.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree at Fairmont State University is an alternative and accelerated means for college graduates with degrees in liberal arts, fine arts, and professional fields to attain teacher licensure. Designed for both recent graduates who want to enhance their employability and for professionals with a Bachelors degree who are seeking to change careers, the MAT enables candidates to enter the classroom prepared to teach and to qualify for the higher salary level for teachers with a Masters. The program provides the professional education courses and clinical experiences - including student teaching - necessary to prepare candidates for teaching in a specific content area in grades PreK-Adult, 5-Adult, or 9-Adult (see Specializations for a list of all certification options). The MAT program does not currently offer licensure in Elementary Education or Special Education; however an endorsement in Special Education may be added after the initial license in a content area is earned.
