Master of Arts in Teaching Programs

Every teacher who’s making a difference in the classroom took his or her own path to education. Many chose to teach following a career or undergraduate education in a seemingly unrelated field.

The majority of our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) students are working professionals, so we’ve designed our programs to accommodate those schedules, while providing thorough preparation new teachers need to succeed. Watson has strong partnerships with teachers, schools, districts. Graduates enter the field as teachers with a masters-level degree and extensive field and classroom experience.
