STEM Bachelor of Science - Master of Arts in Teaching
STEM students can enroll in the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program after completion of their Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Mathematics, or Physics. The MAT program is designed to allow students to complete their courses in education and teacher preparation in just 15 months of full-time coursework. This program is intense, but you will complete a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in five years, which qualifies you for better salary.
Since this program is a graduate program, there are entrance requirements, including a 3.0 GPA or better, sufficient performance on the PRAXIS I exam, a portfolio demonstrating that you are a good candidate to become a teacher, and an entrance interview. For more information, contact the secondary MAT coordinator, Dr. Marcia Cushall (phone 301.687.4308).
