Master of Arts in Teaching
The Master of Arts in Teaching degree is designed for
pre-kindergarten through 12th grade visual art teachers who have an
initial license and are seeking a professional license in the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The MAT program is designed to meet the
“appropriate master’s degree” requirement, which is part of the
criteria for professional stage licensure, as set forth in the most
recent Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
regulations. This degree program will also appeal to secondary school
teachers who already hold a standard level or professional license and
want to acquire additional knowledge and a master’s degree in the
discipline. A minimum of 18 approved graduate credits in the academic
area of concentration and successful completion of a comprehensive
examination is required.
Questions regarding the Graduate Program should be directed to Professor John Hooker, the Graduate Coordinator for the Art Department.
