With a 30-year history of success, the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program offers the tools needed to be successful secondary classroom teachers.
The Clarkson MAT program is the right career choice because graduates consistently have a success rate of over 90% on the rigorous New York State Teacher Certification Exams and a job placement rate of 100 percent for the past four years. Our students graduate with confidence and hands on experience in the classroom built during an individually selected, full-year, mentored teaching residency included as part of the program.
The MAT program is a licensure-endorsing program that prepares you for the New York State teachers certification at the secondary level (7–12 grade). The program prepares you in the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, technology (K–12), mathematics, English, social studies, business and marketing (pre-K–12), computer science (pre-K–12), Chinese, French, German, Greek, Latin, Russian and Spanish. Additional coursework is available to extend foreign language certification for first-grade teachers, and other disciplines for fifth-grade teachers.
