Program Description

Master of Arts in Teaching

Cardinal Stritch University

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Teaching degree program is an accelerated, post-baccalaureate teacher certification program specifically designed to meet the needs of the returning adult student.

With a dual emphasis on teacher certification in PreK-12 education and a master's degree, that enhances the ability to apply theory to practice, this program allows graduate students to enter a new career in teaching while advancing professionally and academically.

The M.A. in Teaching prepares students for teacher certification and a master's degree in elementary, middle or high school education. The program combines classroom instruction with field experience in PreK-12 schools. Completion of a full semester student teaching placement qualifies students to apply for a teaching license in their chosen area just 18 months after starting the program.

The M.A. in Teaching program is available in Milwaukee and Madison. An integral aspect of both the certification process and master's degree coursework is the development of a professional portfolio. This portfolio will evolve through the course of the program and is designed to meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) requirements for teacher licensure and renewal.

Currently licensed teachers who wish to add an elementary or secondary license can also do so through Stritch's M.A. in Teaching program. Licensed teachers can choose a “license only” or a “license with Master’s Degree” option in one of the M.A. in Teaching certification areas.
