Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Spanish

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Spanish

The MAT in Spanish is a 12 course program (36 credits) that takes the student through the entire licensure process for whatever level he or she needs to attain (initial or professional). It was designed for people who are already teaching with at least a preliminary license and need to advance to the next level. We are conscious that the majority of our students have full-time teaching positions which means class offerings are usually in the evenings. There are also courses offered during two summer sessions and abroad. 

Licensure and the MAT can often feel like challenging and we are here to address any concerns that you may have.  Feel free to contact our coordinator, Dr. Kenneth Reeds at any time. 

TAKING COURSES AS YOU APPLY 

We are aware that many people want to start their academic advancement quickly and with this in mind we permit candidates to take up to three courses (nine credits) as non-matriculating students. This means that while you are still accumulating your admissions materials, you can start taking classes quickly - always keeping in mind that non-matriculated status does not guarantee an offer of admission.  If you are interested in this option you can register for classes by following the directions on the First Time Self-Service webpage and our coordinator would be more than happy to advise you as to what classes would be appropriate.
