Secondary Education

The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.), Middle Grades and Secondary program (grades 6-12) is an 11-month program for students who have completed a baccalaureate degree and who are seeking a teaching certificate in secondary and middle grades education.

Applicants to this program should preferably have an undergraduate degree in a subject normally taught in Alaska secondary schools (e.g. English, social studies, mathematics, sciences, art, music) or be willing to take courses in that subject area to strengthen their content background. It is usually offered as a cohort model beginning in the summer with a six-week program offered on the Juneau Campus.  In the fall and spring students take e-learning classes in addition to the internship in the community where they’ve been placed.
