Earn an M.A. in Teaching (M.A.T.) from Marylhurst
Are you inspired to influence the development of today’s youth through education? Whether you’re a recent graduate with a bachelor’s degree, a professional seeking a career change, or you are already working in K-12 education in a non-licensed capacity, a Marylhurst master’s degree in teaching provides the skills needed to impact the lives of children through K-12 education.
While earning your masters in teaching, you’ll develop proficiency in curriculum, instruction and assessment, with a focus on literacy and cultural responsiveness, and apply these learned skills through student teaching assignments. Students receive a broad perspective of K-12 education and choose to concentrate their coursework in either multiple subject (elementary) or single subject (secondary) assignments and student teaching experiences.
Graduates earn an Oregon Initial I teaching license along with a Master’s in Teaching degree, and have the option to earn additional endorsements in reading or English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Middle-level authorization and content area endorsements may also be earned.
