About

Oakland University’s Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education (MATEE) program is designed for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field and are now seeking a career in teaching. 

Overview

The Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education (MATEE) program at Oakland University is a 2-year teacher certification program that will prepare individuals for a career in teaching at the elementary or middle school level (grades K-8). The program combines teacher education coursework, three field placements in local schools, and a semester-long (15-week) student teaching internship.

Program delivery

Courses are taken as a cohort with coursework beginning in the fall semester. All classes are held on OU’s main campus two weekday evenings per week, in addition to some online coursework. Students are required to complete 100 hours of field experiences prior to student teaching. During the field placements, students will actively engage in the classroom, observe instruction and classroom management, work with small groups of students, and implement lessons. Field placements are arranged to afford students depth, breadth, and diversity of authentic learning experiences in schools where they can apply what they are learning in a real classroom.
