Middle and Secondary Education BA/BS-MAT (4+1 Program)

At UMass Dartmouth, we offer our undergraduates a unique, accelerated teaching program. They can take up to 15 credits of Education courses in place of five electives, and these courses can be transferred directly to a Master’s degree upon graduation.
