Master of Arts in Teaching- Online Instruction (M.A.T.)
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) is a graduate degree with a prescrbed cognate designed for contributing to the acquisition of a teaching licenses when partnered with BSU's post-baccalaureate secondary teaching license program or special education non-teaching licensure program or special education non-teaching licensure program or an appropriate elective concentration. The M.A.T. by itself is not a licensure-granting degree, but a secondary license may be completed concurrenty via the FasTrack Bemidji Secondary Post-Bac initiative (though additional coursework would need to be completed). The core of required courses is aimed at enhancing skills related to online instruction and also leads to a "Certificate of Online Teaching". The degree is a response to the recognition that many high schools and community colleges are moving toward offering more online classes.
