The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree is designed for students who have completed a bachelor's degree in a non-education program with appropriate teaching majors and minors, and who desire both a master's degree and Michigan Provisional Teaching Certification at the secondary level. Teaching certification can be earned prior to completion of the master's degree requirements. The M.A.T. program consists of graduate level courses (several involving work with children in a school setting) and a student teaching experience for a minimum of one University semester.
Persons interested in the elementary or secondary education M.A.T. should consult with an admissions counselor, Room 469 or 489 Education Building, about acceptable teaching majors and minors before filing an application.
Students completing the program earn a Master of Arts degree and Secondary Teaching Certification in the State of Michigan.
