Addressing Barriers to the Teaching Field
Teacher Education Faculty Receive Spencer Foundation Grant to Research Barriers to Diversifying the Teacher Pipeline in California.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program focuses on curriculum. We engage in critical study of historical and current controversies that shape what is taught in classrooms today. Teachers learn to design curriculum that embodies their educational values and provides all students access to powerful learning opportunities.
Teacher candidates are recommended by USF to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) for the Preliminary Multiple Subjects (36 credits) or Single Subject (34 credits) Teaching Credential with optional bilingual authorization in Spanish.
"The MAT program at USF has challenged my own preconceptions of what it means to be an educator and has opened my eyes to the diverse needs of students not only as scholars, but also as human beings worthy of dignity." - Jonathan Chin, current student
