MAT Plus

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 Initial Teacher Licensure preparation.

MAT Plus offers specialist endorsements in:

  • English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
  • ESOL/Bilingual
  • Reading
  • Special Education

Eleven additional semester credit hours are completed online during the MAT for ESOL and Reading specialist endorsements. The 19 credits for the Special Ed endorsement are offered in a variety of formats (not all online).
