Special Education M.A.T.

The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree in Special Education provides initial teacher preparation at the master's degree level for qualified candidates who hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution.

Most candidates do not currently hold clear, renewable certification; some candidates hold clear, renewable certificates in distantly related teaching fields (e.g., Physical Education, Business Education). Students are expected to begin and matriculate with their cohort for satisfactory completion of the degree program.
