Master of Arts in Teaching Program

Smith offers a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program, and applications for the fall are due soon. The MAT is designed for students who are planning to teach in elementary, middle or high schools and those wishing to do advanced study in the field of education. The MAT is a one year program, running from July until May. Students earn a Master's degree and licensure to teach in Massachusetts. They also meet the requirements for licensure in various other states. Applications are due January 15 to be considered for financial aid. Regular deadline is April 1.
