Program Overview

Program Description:
The Master of Arts in Teaching Program is an 11-month program for liberal arts and sciences graduates who want to become certified teachers any time after graduation from college. This full-time program begins each year in early June and leads to certification the following May. After certification and while teaching in a school, students take one more course designed to help support them in the first full year of teaching. After successfully concluding that course, students are awarded the master's degree. Earlham's M.A.T. offers certification in social studies, English/Language Arts, math, science and modern foreign languages, all at the middle and high school level.
