The Master of Arts in Teaching program prepares highly qualified career changing professionals and recent graduates of higher education to be Arkansas classroom teachers. 

The MAT graduate degree program is:

  • Designed for individuals without teaching credentials but who have successfully completed a baccalaureate degree and wish to become a teacher in an expeditious fashion.
  • Intended to assist potential teachers, those having a baccalaureate degree in a content area, to become practicing educators.
  • A 30 hour graduate degree program with three tracks: K-6 Elementary, 4-8 Middle Level and Secondary/K–12.

The Graduate Coordinator’s office is located in Willard Hall room 107.  From 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM Monday through Friday and summer hours which are 7:00 AM until 5:30 PM Monday through Thursday, someone will be available to answer your questions.  We look forward to meeting you. PLEASE NOTE: While we welcome drop-in visitors, we cannot always guarantee the Graduate Coordinator will be available to answer your questions on short notice. Faculty have many responsibilities that take them out of the office for meetings, school visits, etc.
