About

The Master of Arts in Teaching program in Elementary Education at the University of Georgia is designed for individuals seeking initial teacher certification in grades PK-5. 

Overview

The Elementary Education program at the University of Georgia blends theory and practice grounded in our shared philosophy of critical pedagogy. We prepare teacher-leaders who are capable of engaging culturally and linguistically diverse children, families, and communities.

The Summer-to-Summer program (four semesters) is flexible, accessible, and designed for working adults. The program offers online and face-to-face courses in content areas such as language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science, as well as courses in educational theory and practice; equity, access, and inclusion; bilingual reading strategies; integrating curriculum and assessment; culturally responsive teaching and environments; and critical arts-based pedagogies. The MAT program offers theoretically and clinically rich experiences in diverse environments that encourage teachers to develop their identity as thought leaders and agents of change.

We are seeking education professionals and others with a passion for teaching, a wealth of experience, and a drive to engage children and young people in Georgia and beyond.
