Teaching (MAT)

The Concordia University, St. Paul, Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program leads to a master’s degree and licensure as a Kindergarten through Sixth Grade teacher. The program is designed for candidates to develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be effective educators in today’s elementary classrooms. Candidates may earn an initial license or add the K-6 license to an existing license.

The MAT program is 42 credits. Students may choose to complete only the licensure portion and not the master’s degree – this option is 36 credits. Licensure only students do not complete ED 521 or ED 590.
