Build Upon Your Transition to Teaching Degree
Earn a M.A. Teaching degree that lets you follow your passion for helping others.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program is designed for students who have completed our Transition to Teaching program. Transition to Teaching credits contribute toward the Master of Arts in Teaching degree, making it an easy next step to advancing your education.
After completing the Transition to Teaching program (18-24 credit hours), whether at Bethel or another institution, receiving your Indiana teaching license, and then passing all the necessary tests, you can proceed for your MAT degree by taking an additional 12-18 credit hours. This puts you at a total of 36 credit hours of graduate study.
If you are inspired to take the leap into the next level in education, an MAT degree can help prepare you for various administrative positions within P-12 schools and school districts. Our faculty members are experienced professionals who provide expertise and mentorship to help you grow as a student and a person. By the time you graduate, you will have built a network of contacts you need to take your education career to the next level.
