Master of Arts in Teaching-Middle Grades STEM
Georgia College offers an online Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Middle Grades Mathematics and Science for teaching grades 4-8. The program is 36 hours with all coursework online with the exception of required field experiences in a school. Current teachers in middle grades classrooms can use their own classrooms to complete the field experiences and if the candidate does not have a school available, we can assist in finding a local school.
