Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) programs combine graduate and undergraduate study and enables a student with a baccalaureate degree to earn teaching licensure and a master’s degree in approximately four or five semesters of full-time study, depending upon academic background, experience, and teaching field.

Program Requirements

Requirements consist of

  1. general requirements, common to all M.A.T. programs,
  2. content course requirements and retention requirements, specific to each licensure area and
  3. successful completion of benchmarks established for program accreditation compliance.
  4. passing score on the OAE content test for the licensure area and passing score on the OAE pedagogy test.

A student who has satisfied all or most of the content course requirements can expect to complete an M.A.T. program in four semesters or in three semesters and one summer; others can expect that additional semesters will be necessary in proportion to the number of content courses that must be satisfied.

Admission

In addition to admission requirements previously listed for all master’s programs within the department, candidates must have a baccalaureate degree.

Cohort

We encourage anyone with a degree who wants to be a teacher to contact us about our MAT programs. When you are admitted to the program, you are automatically admitted to the cohort. A cohort is a group of students in a common teaching field, taking the same methods courses and student teaching in specific academic years.

A cohort is identified by its general subject area and an academic year; for example, integrated mathematics 2017-18, English language arts 2018-19, and chemistry education 2016-17 are separate cohorts. The cohort year indicates the academic year the student is scheduled for methods courses, and the following academic year when the student is scheduled for student teaching.

You should schedule a pre-application counseling appointment with the Department of Teacher Education coordinator of advising, 513-529-6443. The coordinator will examine your transcript and advise you about your application, estimate time to complete the degree, and cohort year.
