Designed for career changers, this 12-month accelerated MAT prepares you for secondary teacher certification and is rated in the top 10 by U.S. News & World Report.

If you’re ready to start a new career in secondary education but don’t want to wait to finish a two-year master’s program or another bachelor’s degree, the online Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is for you. This 12-month accelerated MAT combines online courses with classroom experiences at an accredited middle or high school near you.

The MAT allows you to choose a specialization in English, agricultural education, social studies, mathematics or modern languages, regardless of what you studied as an undergraduate student. The English, agricultural education, social studies and mathematics tracks will prepare you to receive a teaching license for grades 6-12. The modern languages track will prepare you to receive a teaching license for grades K-12.

The MAT follows a cohort model that begins mid-May and ends in mid-April. A cohort is a group of students who complete classes at the same time within the same degree program and graduate together.

Application deadline is April 1 (March 1 for international applicants). See admission requirements below for full details.
