International Teaching and Learning: Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.)
About our International Teaching and Learning: Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Program (non-cert)
This master’s degree program is designed to meet the needs of globally-focused individuals with a desire and passion to teach internationally. It is intended to bridge international experience with theory, research, and best-practice for teaching P-12 students. As part of this full-time, three-semester program candidates complete 33 credit hours in graduate level course and practicum field work that will help them better understand students, teaching, assessment, and reflective practice from a global perspective. This program focuses on preparing teachers for P-12 students and schools they may encounter around the world, and is not registered as leading to teaching certification in any single jurisdiction.
Candidates must hold a teaching position in a school partnering with Niagara University’s MAT program in International Teaching and Learning (non-cert) in order to complete the field experience requirements for this degree. Please note that this program does not prepare students to obtain New York State certification.
