Master of Arts in Teaching And Learning (M.A.)

36 Hours

The Master’s of Teaching and Learning is designed for participants who have a bachelor's degree in a field other than education and are working in a classroom as a long-term substitute or on a temporary teaching certificate. The program consists of courses centered on foundational skills for instruction such as curriculum, classroom culture, and quality instruction. This program is designed to lead to alternative teaching certification in qualifying states.

This degree is aligned to the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) core teaching standards, which outline the common principles and foundations of teaching practice that cut across all subject areas and grade levels and that are necessary to improve student achievement. T eachers who successfully complete this degree have demonstrated these skills within their classroom and school, through portfolio-based artifacts.
