Regional MAT Sessions Planned

College graduates who are interested in a career as a teacher may want to attend one of the upcoming orientations on the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Morehead State University.  Also, those currently enrolled in the MAT Program are invited to attend any of the sessions for advising questions and/or concerns.

MSU offers three MAT programs (middle school, secondary and interdisciplinary early childhood education) in which degree holders with no prior teaching experience may obtain a master’s degree and teacher certification while employed as a teacher.

Orientation/advising sessions for the MAT program at MSU will be held at various locations from Oct. 17 through Dec. 14. For orientation purposes, items such as program design, admission and application processes for middle, secondary and interdisciplinary early childhood education will be discussed. In addition any questions/concerns related to the Secondary and Middle Grade program course curriculum will be discussed.

Interested persons are encouraged to bring transcripts and GRE or Praxis I (PPST, CORE/CASE) scores for evaluation purposes. Registration for the GRE or the Core Academic Skills for Educators (CORE/CASE) exam can be completed through the Educational Testing Service (ETS) website at www.ets.org/praxis.  For those attending for advising purposes, please bring a current copy of your check sheet/program evaluation, or contact Duane Lambert, Marian Sims, or Michelle Roberts prior to the session you plan to attend.

Sessions will be held on these dates and locations:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 5, 4:00 p.m., MSU at Ashland
  • Tuesday, Dec. 12, 4:30 p.m., Morgan County Public Library, West Liberty
  • Wednesday, Dec. 13, 4:30 p.m., MSU Main Campus (801 Ginger Hall)
