Become a teacher in less than 2 years
Maybe you always thought about teaching but decided to pursue another major in college. Becoming a teacher is still within your reach! No matter your age or stage in life, if you have an undergraduate degree from an accredited school in a content area taught in secondary schools, you can realize your dream of a rewarding teaching career in less than two years through UIndy's MAT program.
Strong faculty support
Our program is taught by dedicated professors and licensed teachers who will partner with you and engage you in relevant and applicable pedagogy lessons. They'll provide meaningful assessments that will encourage reflection. Our goal is to graduate outstanding secondary teachers who are ready to meet the needs of today's diverse learners.
Would I be a good fit?
Yes! While all MAT students exhibit a desire to teach and are motivated to share life-experiences and real-world prospective with young people, a great amount of diversity exists among them. Our students range in age from 23–60 and come from highly diverse backgrounds, including stand-up comedians, former professional athletes, retail managers, research biologists, military aircraft pilots, journalists, chemists, linguists and pastors.
