Masters in Teaching Rankings

Masters in Teaching Rankings

Not every university offers a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) but those that do tend to have more proactive Departments of Education, because they have developed this degree as an alternative to the Master of Education (MEd) for career changers who want to become teachers and for teachers who would like an advanced degree. The MAT was designed to provide the essentials for a teaching education and develop additional teachers for an educational system that was woefully short of personnel. The teacher shortage is not as acute today as it once was, although there is still a substantial need for teachers in the areas of technology, science and mathematics. The universities listed below have MAT programs, some of which are available online. Our selections are based on national rankings and on the variety of options available for the degree.

  • Vanderbilt University has the finest College of Education in the country. The Master of Arts in Teaching program is a thirty six credit hour requirement and is open to working teachers and to those with a bachelor's degree in some other field, who would like to switch careers and become teachers. It is designed specifically for the certification of secondary school teachers and the areas of concentration reflect that focus. Students must commit half the obligatory credit hours to the area of concentration, which may be chosen from biology, chemistry, earth science, economics, English, foreign languages, history, Latin, physics, and political science.
  • Johns Hopkins University has several MAT options available in several formats. The four primary choices are Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Secondary Education, and TESOL, or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. The MAT in Secondary Education offers specialization in English, French, Spanish, Mathematics, TESOL, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, and Social Studies. There is an immersion program called SIMAT that takes one year of full time study. ProMAT is a paid eighteen month program conducted in partnership with Montgomery County that requires a two year teaching commitment, FlexMAT which is a part time program for working professionals in other fields, and a compressed program for undergraduates
  • University of Southern California has an extraordinary MAT program that is available on campus or as an online degree open to anyone in the country. The program is open to current teachers who want to move into advanced teaching at the secondary school level and to professionals who have a bachelor's degree but no background or experience in education. The areas of concentration available to both classes of students are English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Multiple Subject Teaching.
  • University of Michigan at Dearborn has a MAT program that requires an entrance exam to ensure that students have the appropriate background for their chosen area of concentration. The curriculum includes both a major and a minor; it is intended to train high school teachers only and is designed for working professionals who are entering teaching from another field. Classes are held on evenings and weekends. Areas of concentration include Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Earth Science, Economics, English, Environmental Studies, French, History, Integrated Science, Mathematics, Political Science, Social Studies, and Spanish.
  • Ohio State University offers the Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning as a catchall degree, an option for students interested in a teaching career as well as a stepping stone to the doctoral program. It is designed primarily for working teachers although professionals from other fields may enroll. The areas of specialization are comprehensive: Arts-based Education, Drama Education, Children & Young Adult Literature, Engineering & Technology Education, Early and Middle Childhood, Mathematics, Multicultural Education, Reading, Science, and Social Studies.
