School districts highly value teachers who have specialist endorsements on their licenses. We have created a program for teacher candidates to reach this goal during their Preliminary Teacher Licensure preparation.
MAT Plus offers specialist endorsements in:
- English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
- Special Education
Eleven additional credit hours are completed online for the Plus ESOL and Reading specialist endorsements with coursework embedded throughout the program. Ninteen additional credits hours are required for the Special Education endorsement and are completed in a hybrid format (both on-campus and online) as an additional two semesters following completion of the core MAT program.
