MAT – Master of Arts in Teaching

Be a life changer

Master of Arts in Teaching in Early Childhood Education

If you want to teach, but your undergraduate degree is in something other than education, Reinhardt’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is for you.

SUPPORTIVE

As a cohort program, students who enter the program at the same time take classes together through graduation.

VALUABLE

MAT graduates earn a master’s degree and a recommendation for a Georgia Level 5 Certificate in Early Childhood Education (P-5). Both are essential for job applicants seeking to enter the teaching field.

FOCUSED

Classes are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings during each eight-week session (two classes per session) for a total of 12 hours per semester. The program spans four semesters, three of which are course work. The final semester is a Clinical Residency (student teaching) with a full-time placement in an elementary classroom.

CONVENIENT

The MAT is offered at the main campus in Waleska, GA and Forsyth County.

“I was a nontraditional student, as were most of my colleagues. As a wife and a mother, I never thought I would be able to go back to school again, but this program gave me the opportunity to follow my dreams. The professors care. They WANT you to succeed. This program and my professors truly changed my life.”
