Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT):
- Middle Grades (Math/Science)
Good science and mathematics teachers have strong content knowledge, knowledge of teaching and boundless enthusiasm for their subject. Great STEM teachers have these qualities, too, but they also have the skills, knowledge, and dispositions that allow them to meet the needs of all learners. The program will prepare teachers in their specified discipline and provide them with knowledge of teaching English learners, teaching students with exceptionalities and integrating technology into instruction.
Through collaboration with faculty from the College of Science and Mathematics, the Bagwell College of Education, experienced classroom teachers, and school district leaders, the MAT program was designed to develop science and mathematics teachers who can apply knowledge of their learners, their teaching fields and effective teaching to ensure they can meet the needs of all learners. Yearlong clinical placements in our partner schools (Cobb County School District, Marietta City Schools and Paulding County School District) and discipline specific courses on how to teach, taught by faculty who have middle school and/or high school teaching experience within that discipline, will be integral parts of the program.Click here to view all the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Programs
