4+1 Master of Arts in Teaching
The Education Department is offering a Master of Arts in Teaching* 4+1 through program.
This program allows students to earn a Master's degree faster by taking graduate-level
courses in their senior year.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) focuses primarily on the advancement of teaching
as a career and is designed to offer current University of Dallas undergraduate students
the opportunity to earn a Master’s degree in five years, in conjunction with their
baccalaureate studies. Students can expect to gain hands-on teaching experience,
working directly with students and practitioners in the field. Essentially, the
M.A.T. will provide in-depth knowledge of teaching coupled with extensive experiences
in the classroom as a student teacher under the direct supervision of university faculty
and accomplished classroom teachers.
This program will also allow students to graduate with Texas State Teaching Certification
for either All-Level, Elementary (Early Childhood - 6th grade), Middle School (grades
4 - 8), or Secondary School (grades 7 - 12).
