Master of Arts in Teaching

TEAM Scholarship

The Teacher Education Access at Miami (TEAM) Scholarship provides a 50% discount on graduate tuition and fees for Ohio PreK-12 Educators.

The MAT program is designed for students who do not have a teaching license but want to teach.

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is for you if you:

  • Have one or more degrees.
  • Wish to obtain a teaching license.
  • Have a desire to teach grades 7-12.
  • Have a desire to teach English/language arts, mathematics, science, or social studies in grades 7-12 or foreign language in grades pre-K thru 12.

The Department of Teacher Education’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is NOT for you if you:

  • Are already a certified or licensed teacher.
  • Have a degree and wish to teach elementary grades.
  • Have a degree and wish to teach any subject other than English/language arts, mathematics, science, or social studies in grades 7-12.

The MAT is typically a two-and-a-half year program, depending on the content courses you have already completed, when you start the program, and whether or not you take summer courses.

Licensure programs in early and middle childhood are only available at the undergraduate level. If you have a degree and want licensure in early or middle childhood, you must apply as an undergraduate student and take all undergraduate courses.
