Teaching with Credential, MAT

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.

Prepared to Succeed

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.

Our Faculty

Our professors are experts in the field. They hold degrees from top institutions in their fields and leverage a broad understanding of educational issues. Classroom teachers by trade, they offer an intimate understanding of day-to-day classroom life and effective pedagogical strategies.

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."
