The Master of Arts in Teaching is a post baccalaureate initial teacher certification program currently limited to the areas of mathematics and science. This cohorted program requires a bachelor’s degree in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics related field.
The Master of Arts in Teaching is designed to develop the knowledge and skill of reflective practitioners for a variety of educational settings. It is our belief that teachers ought to be content experts who are effective practitioners, leaders, change agents, intellectuals, researchers, and learners. They should be passionate learners who embrace diversity, actively inquire and reflect upon their own practice. Cohort size is limited to 25 candidates per discipline.
In this intense program candidates will take a minimum four to five courses depending upon discipline interest across summer I and summer II sessions, spend three full days in classrooms beginning the first week of September, and a full day of coursework a week on campus during fall semester. Candidates will complete a full time (5day/week) internship January through mid-June (depending on district placement). Most candidates will complete all requirements for certification within 15 months of starting coursework.
