Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) 

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree program is for those with a four year degree who wish to become a certified middle or secondary school teacher.  Upon program completion, our MAT candidates graduate with a "highly qualified" designation by the state of Delaware.  The MAT is designed to be completed in three semesters and a summer and is offered at the Dover campus.

Detailed information on the MAT program including our philosophy of learning and teaching, our learner outcomes and assessment system, admission requirements, and course descriptions may be found in the program links below.
