5 Masters in Teaching Schools

Five Masters in Teaching Schools

Some universities that offer the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree make it available only to teachers who have completed their bachelor's degree in education and hold a teaching license that is current. Other programs are strictly designed for professionals who have a bachelor's degree in a field unrelated to education, who have no experience in the field, and who wish to make a career change into teaching. But most schools with the MAT offer the degree both to working teachers and to would-be teachers. The MAT addresses the teacher shortage in two ways: it brings career-changers into the field and it allows working teachers to earn a degree in one of the STEM teaching areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Most MAT programs are two years or less in duration, providing an accelerated program to swell the teaching ranks in the United States.

1. Western Governors University has a fully developed online MAT program, all of which has been accredited by the National Council on Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). There are two choices for the MAT in Mathematics, one for teaching grades 5-9 and one for grades 5-12. In the area of science the same divisions apply: there is a MAT in Science for grades 5-9 and another curriculum for teaching science to grades 5-12. There is also a MAT for Teaching Grades K-8; this is the general teaching degree for elementary and middle school classes.

2. Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan has developed a set of MAT programs for aspiring school administrators as well as for teachers. The areas of specialization offered at Marygrove include Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment for grades K-12; Elementary Reading & Literacy Grades K-6; Elementary Mathematics Grades K-5; and Middle School Mathematics Grades 6-8. The Curriculum and Instruction program is designed for teachers or professionals joining the education field who wish to work in curriculum oversight within a school or a school district.

3. Grand Canyon University offers the Master of Arts in Teaching with a couple of areas of concentration that veer away from the classroom role. The MAT in Professional Learning Communities is designed for working elementary school teachers who wish to improve their educational status as teachers and develop the advanced teaching skills that may lead to National Board Certification. The MAT in Teacher Leadership is also for teachers who have an active license, with courses in Instructional Leadership, Legal Issues in Education, and Educational Action Research.

4. University of St. Mary is a Kansas school that has been operating for 150 years and today has two campuses and a number of online degrees. The Master of Arts in Teaching is meant for teachers who have obtained their license and are currently working in a classroom. There is one area of concentration for the degree: Educational Theory & Research. The program is designed for teachers who wish to develop careers in Curriculum & Instruction or in Instructional Design. It's an excellent program for education professionals who are looking for a track out of the classroom.
