The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program seeks to create a learning environment that provides models, growth experiences, and communities of practice for equipping Christian educators who make wise decisions as they create effective learning communities. We are equipping discerning educators. The entire early childhood and elementary school curricula are addressed. Graduates are eligible for initial teacher certification recommendation in South Carolina as well as with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
The M.A.T. program is designed to meet the scheduling needs of individuals. Candidates may begin their course of study at the beginning of the Fall or Spring semesters. The program may be completed in four terms of full-time study or candidates may extend the time to complete the program. The M.A.T. program director is available to assist candidates in planning their degree program.
We strive to produce Christian educators who are involved learners, effective practitioners, and authentic professionals so they can make wise decisions as they create effective learning communities.
Candidates will demonstrate that they are becoming discerning educators when they show they are:
Teach early childhood and elementary education in Christian, international, private and public schools.
