Master of Arts in Teaching Program

What is the difference between the Post-bac and MAT programs?

Individuals who already have an undergraduate degree and want to pursue certification as a secondary (7-12) history/social studies teacher may apply for study in either the Post-Bac Program, which prepares students for state certification, but does not lead to a master’s degree, or the MAT Program, which prepares students for state certification and leads to a Masters of Art in Teaching.

To enter either certification program at CCSU, students you MUST PASS Praxis II: Social Studies: Content Knowledge (5081). You can find out more here: https://www.ets.org/s/praxis/pdf/5081.pdf

What should I do first?

The MAT Program is run through the School of Education and Professional Studies.
