The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is an accelerated teacher licensure program that is designed for candidates who already hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. The 45-hour program of study includes an initial 36-hour sequence of courses in 21st Century teaching and learning, technology, and methodology which culminates in a capstone student teaching internship experience. During PHASE I of the program post-baccalaureate courses allow candidates to complete the requirements for an initial N.C. teaching license in Elementary Education K-6, including student teaching. At the completion of PHASE I and the candidate’s passing scores on the Praxis II Specialty Examination in Elementary Education, the individual is eligible for the “A” (initial) N.C. teaching license. Should the individual choose not to proceed to PHASE II, he/she has completed the requirements for the initial teaching license in Elementary Education K-6 only.

The individual choosing to receive the MAT degree in Elementary Education K-6 must apply for graduate candidacy and be admitted to PHASE II of the program. In PHASE II the candidate enrolls in an additional 9 hours of graduate coursework in order to complete the remaining requirements for the MAT degree and to be eligible for the “M” level N.C. license in Elementary Education K-6. Coursework includes research methods, educational leadership, and curriculum development. The Elementary Education Comprehensive Examination is also required at the completion of these 9 hours.

The Education program coordinator is Dr. Shirley Disseler. She can be reached atsdissele@highpoint.edu or 336.841.9631. To learn more about Dr. Disseler and the Education Graduate Faculty click here.
