Master of Education in the Art of Teaching (Alternate Route)
The Master of Education in the Art of Teaching (MAT) program, approved by the Mississippi Department of Education, provides an opportunity for noneducation graduates to enter the teaching profession and earn a Master of Education degree in the Art of Teaching. The program is designed to lead to full standard alternative licensure within one year and the option of earning a master’s degree with one additional year. Because of the unique nature of this program, all work must be completed at William Carey University.
Alternate route interns are required to secure full time employment teaching in their licensed areas in approved school districts within a 60-mile radius of William Carey University. Special permission is required if an intern is employed in a school district out of the 60-mile radius.
