Regional MAT Sessions Planned

College graduates who are interested in a career as a teacher should attend an upcoming orientation on the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Morehead State University.  Students who are currently enrolled in the MAT Program are invited to attend to find answers to advising questions and concerns.
MSU offers three MAT programs in which degree holders with no prior teaching experience may obtain a master’s degree and teacher certification, while employed as a teacher. They are:
Middle school.  Secondary.  Interdisciplinary early childhood education.
