Program Description

Engage with the leading trainer of educators in the region through the University of West Alabama’s online Master of Arts in Teaching. In a flexible and online format, you’ll have the freedom to choose your own schedule and progress through the program at your own pace. Designed specifically for individuals considering a change in careers, looking to jumpstart their career to higher positions, or aiming to change the subjects they teach, the program can be completed in one year.

The curriculum of the program has been planned and curated by expert teachers in the field, and as a result, you’ll develop your teaching skills and obtain a master’s-level certificate that can enhance your current position and reveal further opportunities. There are two major tracks in the MAT program through the University of West Alabama: certification and non-certification tracks. These paths encompass a variety of disciplines to prepare you to teach Biology, English Language Arts, History, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science, and Social Science.

Importantly, for those seeking the certification route, you will need to obtain a current certificate in the same teaching field(s) of the master’s-level certificate to advance in the field. Additionally, if you plan to teach outside of the state of Alabama, you must consider teacher certification requirements in your state to see if this program qualifies for certification.

On the non-certification side, you can enhance your ability to confidently develop your teaching abilities for advanced positions in education that do not require any kind of certification. Request more information about the MAT today.
