2012 Placement rate for M.A.T. graduates -- 93%
Have you thought about teaching? Do you want to make a powerful impact in the lives of kids?
If you answered Yes to either of these questions then you may want to consider the M.A.T. program at Earlham College.
The M.A.T. allows students, who did not complete a teacher education program, to attend an eleven-month course of graduate study beginning in June and concluding the following May. More precisely, students will earn teacher certification in May, and then after completing one class during their first semester as a teacher, they will earn their Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
There are three advantages to the M.A.T. at Earlham that are typically not found in other graduate teaching programs.
1) The cohort model was chosen to provide students the opportunity to work closely with other students and to initiate the support system essential within the teaching profession.
2) M.A.T. students are in the classroom, observing and working with children, from the beginning to the end of the program.
3) The course of study can be finished in a short period of time. Not often is a graduate program offered in such a focused and concentrated manner.
Currently, the program offers certification in social studies, English/language arts, math, science, and modern languages at the middle and high school levels.
