This 60- to 64-credit program (depending on the length of student teaching) leads to a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), plus a Master of Arts (MA) in History.
Students work simultaneously toward both degrees and complete the program with initial teaching certification in elementary education (grades 1-6). Full-time students can complete the program in approximately 2 years. Part-time students must complete the program within 6 years of enrollment. During the first year, students are participant-observers at a public school site. During the second year, they may pursue either a full-year teaching internship or a semester-long teaching practicum.
