Master of Arts in Teaching

The MAT Program is a graduate teacher preparation program designed to help students obtain Preliminary Oregon Licensure in either an Elementary-Multiple Subjects or Secondary-Single Subject Area(s)and to enable students to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching Degree.

The College of Education’s full-time, intensive teacher preparation program blends professional knowledge gained through experience in classroom settings with continuing academic preparation. In order to acquire a variety of experiences and to increase future job opportunities, our students normally participate in two placements.  Students begin their placements at the beginning of the school year at assigned school sites in central and eastern Oregon and progress through a full-time student teaching experience.

Application deadline: March 1, 2018.
