Master of Arts in Teaching: One-year sequence

By mid-August, candidates must have completed all undergraduate requirements (e.g., language, additional coursework required in the major area), pre-requisites (EDU 201, 206, 474/574 and a Developmental Psychology or Human Development course). EDU 201 and 206 are offered both Summer I and Summer II, as well as Fall and Spring semesters, with evening and weekend sections requiring 50% online study via Moodle. EDU 474/574 is offered twice in Summer II, on Monday-Wednesday evenings, 6pm to 9pm, and on the 2nd, 4th and 6th Saturdays in Summer II. The Saturday section requires 50% online study through Moodle. It is to the candidate’s advantage to complete the pre-requisites during their undergraduate program, if possible. If there are questions about which course at other institutions will satisfy pre-requisites requirements, the candidate should email the M.A.T. advisor ([email protected]), including the course description, for prior approval.

With all the pre-requisites and undergraduate courses complete by mid-August, candidates will complete their program in this sequence:

Additional Information

Internship: Candidates in the one-year program enroll in an internship in the Fall and Spring semesters. The internship involves a ½ day placement in the schools from September through June. One internship will include a K-6 placement for Art Educators and a 7-9 placement for English, Mathematics and Social Studies Educators. The second placement for Art Educators will be in grades 7-12 and for English, Mathematics and Social Studies Educators will be in grades 9-12.

Fieldwork: All candidates for certification in any area must complete 100 hours of fieldwork, generally required before student teaching. In the one-year M.A.T. sequence, candidates may not have completed all of their fieldwork before beginning their internship. In this circumstance, candidates must complete the required hours by the end of the Fall semester. The fieldwork hours will be scheduled in addition to the internship hours.

Required non-credit:: The three workshops, Reporting and Identifying Child Abuse and Maltreatment, School Violence Prevention, NCR 317 Health Education Standards, must be completed before the candidate begins the internship. Violence and Maltreatment workshops are offered on-line. NCR 317 will ordinarily be offered during the week immediately preceding the beginning of the internship.

Internship seminar meeting: M.A.T. candidates attend a two-day required seminar immediately preceding the beginning of the internship semester, during which they will participate in activities designed to prepare them for the internship, the preparation of the portfolio, meet with their college supervisors and review the assessments and policies that are used during the internship by cooperating teachers and college supervisors. Candidates will also meet five times or more per placement, as scheduled by the Director of Student Teaching Placements and the college supervisors.
