The art of teaching, like the art of music, demands lifelong learning. Whether you are a seasoned music teacher or a musician who is looking to enter the teaching field, Rhode Island College has a master's degree program to meet your needs. The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.-Music) is for candidates who hold a bachelors degree in music (or the credit-hour equivalent) but who do not hold teaching certification. Completion of the M.A.T. program results in certification and requires 43-45 credits, including 16 credits of undergraduate professional courses. Since it usually includes practicum and student teaching, the M.A.T. requires courses offered during daytime hours in the regular academic year. Our program is fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
