Master of Teaching
Boost your credentials with a master’s degree in teaching from Thomas More College.
When you complete the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Thomas More College, you’ll receive both a teaching certificate and a grad degree—both of which advance your teaching career. During your time as a student-teacher, you’ll be right in the classroom practicing what you’re learning. You will develop the teaching skills necessary to teach your students how to learn in a dynamic society.
The MA in Teaching program has two tracks: one for those already teaching with a temporary provisional certificate and one for those who are not currently teaching. In both tracks you will earn your teaching certificate.
Track I - Alternative Certification: Temporary Provisional Certificate Holders
- Currently teaching with a temporary provisional certificate
- Hold a bachelor’s degree with a certifiable major
Track II - Traditional Program: Teaching Certification
- Have a certifiable major in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, social studies, or English
- Want to acquire a teacher certification
- May or may not be employed
- Must participate in a 15-week supervised teaching experience during their final semester
- This non-paid teaching experience requires full participation on weekdays from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm throughout this period
- Candidates must understand that this 7:30 am to 4:30 pm commitment means that they cannot have full-time employment during this period
Looking to move beyond the classroom and into the education system itself? Consider the Master of Education program.
