The MAT for Professional Licensure has been designed to meet the needs of individuals with widely varying backgrounds of prior education and teaching experience.  It is the preferred option for students who either:

  • have completed an undergraduate initial licensure program (Route 1);
  • hold an initial license from another institution (Route 2);
  • have opted to complete an initial licensure program within their district (Route 3); or
  • have earned an initial license through a performance assessment (Route 4).


For students who are begining their journey into teaching, the 5-year BA/BS MAT for Initial Licensure remains the most efficient way to earn both an Initial license in their content area and a Masters degree.
