The Summer-to-Summer program (four semesters) is flexible, accessible, and designed for working adults. The program offers online and face-to-face courses in content areas such as language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science, as well as courses in educational theory and practice; equity, access, and inclusion; bilingual reading strategies; integrating curriculum and assessment; culturally responsive teaching and environments; and critical arts-based pedagogies. The MAT program offers theoretically and clinically rich experiences in diverse environments that encourage teachers to develop their identity as thought leaders and agents of change.
