The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Secondary Mathematics 9-12 is an accelerated teacher licensure program designed for candidates who already hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. The 45 hour program includes two phases. During Phase I, the initial 36 hour sequence of courses will focus on 21st century teaching and learning which culminates in a capstone student teaching experience. Successful completion of Phase I is designed to lead to the initial teaching license in Secondary Mathematics (9-12) upon passing the required Praxis II Specialty Area Exam in Mathematics: Content Knowledge and Mathematics: Pedagogy. Should the individual choose not to proceed to Phase II, he/she will have completed the requirements for the initial teaching license in Secondary Mathematics 9-12.

The individual choosing to receive the MAT degree 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 and be eligible of the “M” level NC license in Secondary Mathematics 9-12.
