Master of Arts in Teaching: Secondary Education
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Kent State University is a graduate-level program that prepares teacher candidates for initial licensure in Ohio and many other states.
The program accepts candidates interested in teaching Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies in grades 7-12. Additionally, the program prepares multi-age teachers (pre-K through 12) in Art, Dance, Foreign Language, and Health. This program offers two tracks: One is an accelerated 11-month program, and the other is a part-time two-year program. The MAT program is offered to recent bachelor and graduate degree holders, as well as career-changing professionals who now desire to become teachers.
