The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is a 16-month program in which candidates earn both a multiple or single subject teaching credential and the MAT degree. Program faculty are scholar-practitioners who possess the requisite academic qualifications and practical experience as lifelong classroom educators. The 45-unit curriculum emphasizes character development, critical thinking skills, continuous research, and field experience, and culminates in an action research thesis. Graduates will have the knowledge, skills, and character representative of a scholar-practitioner and be ready to assume a classroom or administrative role in the field of education.
