Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)


 The Master of Arts in Teaching Program is a 36 hour program that provides the professional education courses and clinical experiences, including student teaching, necessary to prepare individuals for teaching in a specific content area in grades PreK-Adult, 5-Adult, or 9-Adult.  This program is not designed to offer licensure in elementary or special education.  A transcript analysis will be required to identify any additional undergraduate content that may need to be completed in order to meet the requirements for the master’s degree and licensure in the secondary content specialization areas offered through Concord University as defined in WV Policy 5100-6.3.2 Standards for Subject-Area Content in Teacher Preparation Programs.

Note:


*Candidates obtaining a PreK-Adult licensure, such as Music, Art, Physical Education, and Spanish, are also required to take EDUC 517 , Integrated Methods in Elementary Education, to comply with WV Policy 5100. 

Additionally, clinical experiences will be conducted in age/grade/content appropriate classrooms as required by WV Policy 5202 and the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards (WVPTS).
