MAT General Information Session

Thursday, April 11, 2024 at 6:00 PM until 7:00 PMEastern Daylight Time UTC -04:00

The master of arts in teaching (M.A.T.) degree is a certification program designed to prepare college graduates who wish to enter the teaching profession but who have not had adequate preparation for teaching.
Candidates for the M.A.T. degree must complete the Praxis I examination and obtain a passing score as designated by the MSDE. Applicants may be accepted without obtaining passing Praxis I scores, but must pass the Praxis I before being considered for degree candidacy or beginning their internship.

The program is based on the assumption that, through a curriculum carefully balanced in theory and practice, participants can acquire the knowledge and skills needed for teaching general and/or special education students. The program is completed with a yearlong internship or supervised teaching experience guided both by a member of the Goucher faculty and by a cooperating or helping teacher at a professional development school (PDS).

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
