M.A.T. in TESOLCOURSES FAQs OVERVIEW KSU CATALOG
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is a degree for those with a bachelor’s degree, but no education background or teacher certification. Successful completion of program coursework and the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) approved content pedagogy assessment, qualifies graduates for initial teaching certification.
The MAT TESOL focuses on teaching P-12 students who are culturally and linguistically diverse. Core courses include curriculum development, collaborative practices, and content area reading and writing.
Teachers who currently hold a valid teaching certificate, and who are interested in a TESOL master's degree program, should go to the TESOL M.Ed. website located here.
How long will it take to complete?
Students complete the 39 credit hours of course work over a period of approximately 4-7 semesters (including courses in the summer). The final two semesters include intensive field placements within schools.
