Program Description

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Tennessee Wesleyan is designed for working adults who have decided to bring their skills and experience into the classroom.

MAT is an Initial Licensure program, providing college graduates who did not complete a traditional teacher education program the opportunity to earn their graduate degree and teaching license.

The MAT program offers the following licensure areas:

Special Education Interventionist (K-8)

Secondary Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics (6-12)

Elementary Education (K-5)

Secondary Education and Elementary Education students complete a 36-semester hour program of study, with Special Education candidates completing 38 hours. Each program has a job-embedded track where TWU will waive the six-hour student teaching requirement if a student is currently in a teaching position.

Students can also take TWU MAT courses to receive their Special Education Endorsement.

One Saturday a Month

The TWU MAT program is offered in a hybrid format. Students complete the majority of their coursework online, with one meeting on campus each month.

The hybrid format accommodates professionals’ busy schedule, without sacrificing important face-to-face time with colleagues and professors.
