Job Placement Rate for ’12 Earlham M.A.T. Graduates is 93 Percent
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Program is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and by the state of Indiana. An 11-month program for liberal arts and sciences graduates who want to become licensed teachers, this full-time program begins each year in early June and leads to teacher licensure the following May. After licensure and while teaching in a school, students take one more course designed to help support them in the first full year of teaching.
After successfully concluding that final course, students are awarded the master's degree. Earlham's M.A.T. offers licensure in social studies, English/language arts, mathematics, science and modern foreign languages, all at the middle and high school levels.
