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).
