What courses would I take? Students who are accepted into the MAT will take a 39 hour core of education courses, and will be required to complete content area coursework in the subject area they will be teaching. (For recent graduates and those without significant work experience in their field, additional content and teaching methodology coursework may be required.)
To view the required content area coursework for each area of secondary education, excluding Agriculture, Art, and Physical Education, go to the Academic Program Guide page, and then select the area of certification you wish to pursue. The document will show the undergraduate-level education coursework (these courses will NOT be required in the MAT) as well as the content area coursework required for Teacher Certification. You will be required to complete the content area coursework per the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
