It consists of online and face-to-face instruction and more than 100 hours of field experience prior to student teaching.
The MAT program is a technologically rich program in which students master the fundamentals of teaching and become skilled at motivating and helping students learn either science or mathematics at deep levels. The program addresses content directly related to the secondary classroom, educational foundations and specific teaching methods that reflect current research in the field.
The program also provides the courses required for initial certification for grades 9-12 in South Carolina. The program is geared primarily toward adults with a background in science, mathematics or a related discipline who wish to change careers and enter the teaching field.
