The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is an exciting and innovative graduate program that prepares students to teach in Texas public schools. By exploring the roles of teacher as researcher, scholar-practitioner, and educational leader, the master's program cultivates a learning community of faculty and students through dialogue and critical inquiry. This program is designed for students who have earned an undergraduate degree but are not certified to teach. In addition to courses that explore educational research, curriculum, and instructional design, students receive certification through a certification sequence.
There is one face-to-face meeting required on a Saturday for students to take the mastery certification exam (in preparation for the state certification exam).
