Degree and Certificate Programs
Master of Science in Education Degree
Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.)
Another master's degree, offered through the University Graduate School, is the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.). Students in M.A.T. programs do not major in education. They major in a subject field (usually in arts and sciences). M.A.T. programs are useful for secondary teachers desiring to professionalize their teaching license or to earn an original teaching license in conjunction with a master's degree. Those seeking original licenses must meet these requirements (see section titled "Licensure Programs"). Application to most M.A.T. programs is not through the School of Education. It is through the department in which the M.A.T. student is majoring. Two M.A.T. programs that are popular with secondary teachers are the Science and the Social Studies Programs (see University Graduate School Bulletin).
