Elementary Education, MAT (Hybrid)

Become a classroom teacher in grades 1-6

The MAT in Elementary Education is a two-year, cohort-based program that leads to a recommendation for grades 1-6 teacher licensure in the State of Connecticut. A new cohort begins every Fall semester.

The program is grounded in rigorous academic preparation in methods of curriculum and instruction and the preparation of teachers who support the learning of all students. We are guided by the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and seek to prepare the next generation of teachers to enact these values in their classrooms, schools, and communities.

This program is delivered through a hybrid, synchronous format.
