The Master of Arts in Teaching offers eight concentrations – Elementary Education, Middles Grades Education, Secondary English Education, Secondary Mathematics Education, Secondary Science Education, Secondary Social Studies Education, Special Education, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) – that culminate with the development of an Initial Competencies Portfolio, providing eligibility for candidates to apply for “A” licensure from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
The Master of Arts in Teaching is designed for candidates who have a bachelor’s degree but did not pursue teacher education or licensure as an undergraduate. All concentrations in this track will also have prerequisite or corequisite courses, which are required for teaching licensure in North Carolina. The prerequisite or corequisite courses must be completed before a candidate can be recommended for licensure.
The UNC Greensboro School of Education was named one of the 2022 “Top Graduate Schools of Education” by the U.S. News & World Report.
Graduates of the M.A.T. program are well-prepared for successful careers as Middle or Secondary School math teachers.
