The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programs

The Earlham M.A.T. and M.Ed. programs are fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.  As a licensure program, the M.A.T. is further accredited by the state of Indiana.

Both are 11-month programs for college graduates who want to pursue careers in education.  The M.A.T. program is designed for those who wish to become licensed teachers, where the M.Ed. program is set up for students interested in pursuing careers in education other than licensed teaching (private school ed., outdoor ed., community based organizations etc.).

These full-time programs begin each year in early June and lead to a master’s degree the following May, along with a teaching license for those in the M.A.T. program.

Earlham's M.A.T. program offers licensure in social studies, English/language arts, mathematics, science, modern foreign languages, Music, and Art all at the middle and high school levels.
