The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program is designed for graduates who wish to teach in middle or secondary schools, have not completed a teaching licensure program, and majored in mathematics or who have taken a minimum of six mathematics courses beyond Calculus I.

About

The Master of Arts in Teaching Program is a 12-month program for full-time students seeking initial licensure for teaching at the middle, junior, or senior high school levels in accordance with requirements in the state of Massachusetts. Licensure reciprocity exists with many states, but students should investigate specifics in the state of anticipated residence.

The professional education component consists of the study of curriculum and methods of instruction, adolescent development and learning, topics in special education, urban education, and foundations of education. Students complete a two-semester practicum experience culminating in student-teaching. This combination ensures strength in the field of study combined with a comprehensive set of teaching skills appropriate to adolescents.
