Why get an M.A.T. in secondary education?
With a Master of Arts in Teaching in secondary education, gain the knowledge, experience and skills to teach in today’s classrooms and communities. Subject matter, research, theory and field-based experience will help you teach with confidence. Learn to foster caring, cooperation and improvement with internships available in culturally, linguistically and socioeconomically diverse urban and rural schools. The M.A.T. leads to certification for teaching in secondary schools with concentration in areas such as English, math, science, social studies, foreign language, music and the arts. Our teacher education program prepares teacher-leaders – excellent practitioners who work toward improving education in and beyond the classroom.
Why choose UNH for your secondary education degree?
At UNH, you’ll be able to enter the secondary education program at the graduate level or as part of the accelerated master’s program, through which you begin preparation at the undergraduate level with a semester of field experience and professional coursework in education. After completion of your baccalaureate degree, you’ll move into a fifth year of study and full-year internship, leading to the M.A.T. degree and licensure for teaching. Issues related to the challenges and rewards of serving in diverse schools are woven into the teacher preparation program, with unique opportunities through UNH Manchester and the Teacher Residency for Rural Education program.
