The online MAT degree program from the University of West Alabama offers both a certification and noncertification option:
The certification option builds students' teaching skills and helps them obtain a master's-level certificate that can enhance their current position and reveal further opportunities. Students who are not located in Alabama should carefully check the teacher certification requirements in their state to see if this program will be approved for certification.
The non-certification option allows students to build their teaching skills and prepare for advanced positions in education that do not require certification. Students may also consider this option if they are changing careers or the subject they currently teach.
This degree program requires 33-37 credits for completion.
