The MAT satisfies the requirements for earning a Pennsylvania Instructional I Certificate and provides students with a Master’s in Teaching upon graduation.
Our program approaches pedagogy centered on dialogic, student-centered instruction that addresses literature, literary theory, and writing in the secondary ELA classroom. We also focus on issues of equity, justice, and engagement in today’s schools.
The majority of our graduates go on to become English teachers in secondary settings. Many also teach classes in theater, film, or creative writing in their schools.
