Boost your credentials with a master’s degree in teaching from Thomas More College.
When you complete the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at Thomas More College, you’ll receive both a teaching certificate and a grad degree—both of which advance your teaching career. During your time as a student-teacher, you’ll be right in the classroom practicing what you’re learning. You will develop the teaching skills necessary to teach your students how to learn in a dynamic society.
