Program Details

California State University in Fresno offers the Master of Arts in Teaching degree, which may be completed entirely through a virtual classroom, allowing students the flexibility to earn a valuable degree to pursue advanced career opportunities. 

The Kremen School of Education and Human Development has created an online MAT program to increase practicing teachers in a K-12 setting, abilities in three specific areas; multicultural, social justice education, action research, and Web-based teaching/learning. The areas of focus should give student teachers the modern skills to excel in current positions or seek new careers in an educational institution. Teachers in the degree program will provide an improved school curriculum and instruction, as well as extend their teaching credentials. 

Students will partake in the same courses available at the mail campus in Fresno, but with the flexibility of a virtual learning environment. The program requires students to satisfy the one face-to-face meeting on campus, in addition to the specialized courses. The courses delve into topics of interest for professional educators such as: Social Justice and the Multicultural Classroom, Research on Teaching in the Diverse Classroom: Quantitative and Qualitative Methods, and Teaching for Equity and Justice in the Multicultural Classroom: Practice into Theory.

As the final demonstration of a comprehensive understanding of the MAT programs objectives, students have the option of completing one of three options to satisfy the culminating experience: students can complete a project, a comprehensive exam or a thesis. The MAT program should prepare graduates to become highly competent educators and human development specialists, while providing professional support and leadership to the community, promoting applied research, and providing experiences and opportunities that will enable employed professionals to remain current in their fields.
