The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) at the Baylor University is a School-wide residential program offering initial teacher certification. Based on Baylor’s national award-winning teacher-education model, the MAT provides thorough preparation through a program rich in faculty-guided field-based experiences


Key facts:

  • Baylor University undergraduates may pursue the MAT Teaching as a joint degree program, with Baylor seniors taking up to 15 hours of graduate-level work as part of their undergraduate degree program, if approved by their home department. Students must first be admitted to the Graduate School and the MAT program. Upon completion of the MAT, students will receive the bachelor’s degree and MAT simultaneously. If taking full advantage of the option, students could graduate within 12 months of their originally scheduled baccalaureate graduation.
  • The MAT is also available to graduates of Baylor and other universities as a stand-alone post-baccalaureate master’s program offering initial teacher certification.
