The Earlham Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and Master of Education (M.Ed.) programs are 11-month programs for college graduates who want to pursue careers in education.  The M.A.T. program prepares students to become licensed classroom teachers, while the M.Ed. program is for students interested in a variety of careers in education beyond the classroom (outdoor leadership, community based organizations, educational technology, coaching, museums, etc.). Earlham’s programs develop educators who are leaders in their communities, who model outstanding classroom practices, and who prepare their own students to be socially active and morally conscious citizens.

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).
