The MAT program allows students who have a bachelor's degree in a field other than education to obtain teaching certification in an area of secondary education while earning a master's degree at the same time. A new cohort begins every summer. Certification is currently available in 20 different content areas, but not all certifications are available through this program. Contact the MAT Academic Advisor for more information. You may complete this degree in West Plains by taking courses online and through web conferencing technology.
