Master of Arts in Teaching, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

Earlham's M.A.T. program is an 11-month program that leads to a master's degree and an Indiana teaching license (grades 5-12). The program offers licensure in social studies, English/language arts, mathematics, science, modern foreign languages, music, art, physical education, business, computer science, journalism, and theatre at the middle and high school levels.

M.A.T. graduates are immensely well-prepared for their first year of teaching. Besides engaging in rigorous coursework, candidates plan and lead a summer enrichment program with middle school students and complete a year-long placement at a local middle or high school. Under the guidance of their supervisor and mentor teacher, candidates gradually gain responsibility in the classroom, eventually assuming a full-time teaching load in the spring semester.

The cohort model, small program size, emphasis on Quaker-inspired values, personal supervision, and intensive clinical placement with qualified mentor teachers make the M.A.T. program a truly individualized and integrated experience.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
