Chatham University

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

The Master of Arts in Teaching program at Chatham was developed on the premise that successful teachers need a strong liberal arts education, in-depth knowledge of a chosen discipline, and mastery of current educational theory, practice, and technology.

The MAT program is designed for students planning teaching careers in PreK–4, Middle Level (Grades 4-8), K–12 Art Education, and Secondary education. Areas of study in Secondary education include biology, chemistry, English, mathematics, social studies, and physics.

Applicants’ transcripts will be reviewed to determine whether students have completed the academic requirements specified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education in the standards for the desired certification area. Undergraduate requirements for certification in a given area can be completed before a student begins the MAT program or can be completed at Chatham along with the MAT curriculum.
