Earn your Master of Arts in Teaching Degree (MAT) from Brandman University at over 20 campuses throughout California.
The Master of Arts in Teaching is designed for individuals pursuing careers as teachers. The program combines an Elementary, Secondary or Preliminary Specialist credential with a master's degree in teaching. Credential courses and fieldwork experiences are aligned with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) Teacher Performance Expectations and reflect current research in education and best practices. Candidates utilize Common Core Standards and other state content standards to design engaging lessons and develop skills in planning and differentiating instruction, classroom management, and assessment. Advanced courses in research, learning theory and curriculum design prepare candidates to engage in systematic inquiry into their own teaching, and enhance their ability to make sound pedagogical decisions.
Program availability may vary by campus location.
