Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

Graduate

Teaching children is a valuable skill, and the demand for teachers is soaring. With a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree from The University of Southern Mississippi, you could be ready to fill that need as soon as next fall. This 33-credit hour online program is a licensure option for students who wish to teach in a secondary content area while also earning a master’s degree. Our program guides you from the online classroom to your own classroom with the luxury of obtaining a master’s degree while you teach.

The online Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree puts you on a path to licensure that includes a 9-credit hours of summer courses that prepares you to apply to the Mississippi Department of Education for a three-year non-renewable alternate route license and seek employment in a Mississippi school district. 

If you’re interested in teaching, our alternate route MAT degree is set up to give you the opportunity to build on the knowledge and skills you already have to support your teaching abilities, rather than start from scratch.
