Create your future. Shape your world.
A selection committee of M.A.T. faculty and graduate admissions officers assesses the applicants for the program to identify potential enrollees. Admission to the program is a two-stage process, beginning with the initial application, including recommendations and test scores. The M.A.T. faculty and admissions staff review the initial applications.
After the initial screening, only select applicants are invited to campus for an interview. On campus, G.P.E. faculty and admissions staff interview the applicants individually and in groups.
Competence for admission is assessed through:
evaluation of written essays
Grade Point Average (at least 3.0 in either major or overall course work is desired)
standardized test scores (Praxis I and G.R.E.)
letters of recommendation
a transcript review to assess the general breadth of student preparation
Commitment to the cohort and the program's principles and dispositions for teaching are evaluated mainly through analyses of the application essay, interviews and letters of recommendation. We also seek candidates who have positive experiences in working with youth as one other means of confirming their desire and capacity to become a teacher.
