Master of Arts in Teaching - Secondary
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree is designed for individuals with bachelor's degree in a science who seek to be certified to teach science in grades 6-12. Students in this program receive the Michigan Secondary Provisional Teaching Certification while earning credits toward the Master of Arts in Teaching Degree (M.A.T.)
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. A State competency examination will be required in both the major and minor content areas before student teaching (TED 5780 Directed Teaching and Conference).
