Secondary Education (MAT)
The Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Science and Secondary Mathematics is a 38-semester hour program that is completed in 13 months and offered in the Greenville area. It consists of innovative on-line courses, significant face-to-face instruction, and more than 100 hours of field experience prior to student teaching.
The MAT program is a technologically rich program in which students master the fundamentals of teaching and become skilled at motivating and helping students learn science and mathematics at deep levels. The program addresses content directly related to the secondary classroom, educational foundations, and specific teaching methods that reflect current research in the field.
The program also provides the courses required for initial certification in South Carolina. The program is geared primarily towards adults with a background in science, mathematics, or a related discipline who wish to change careers and enter the teaching field.
