M.A.T. in Middle Grades Education Program
The M. A.T. in Middle Grades Education Program is designed for students holding a Bachelor’s degree who are seeking North Carolina Middle Level teaching licensure while simultaneously earning a graduate degree. This 33‐semester hour program prepares teacher candidates to teach middle grades language arts, math, science and/or social studies.
The program of study is available through distance education formats. Students may enroll in the program part-time or full-time. Most full-time students complete this program within two years.
Prior to submission, applicants that reside outside of North Carolina must refer to the Distance Education website to make certain that UNCW has secured authorization to offer online courses to the residents in their state. If you reside in a state where UNCW is not currently authorized to offer online courses, contact the Office of External Programs at (910) 962-2953 or firstname.lastname@example.org to determine if authorization can be obtained.
