Regional MAT sessions planned

College of Education logoCollege 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.  Those currently enrolled in the MAT Program are also invited to attend any of the sessions for advising questions 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.

For orientation purposes, items such as program design, including 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.
