What Can You Do With an M.A.T.?

90% of M.A.T. graduates are employed in an educational setting within one year of completing our program. Many work as teachers in public school settings, while others work in independent schools, higher education and education administration. Some of our graduates have gone on to further study for tertiary degrees. Our students work in settings across the United States. Massachusetts license has reciprocity with 49 states and abroad. The teaching licenses obtained through this program are recognized in a number of other states, U.S. territories and Canadian provinces through the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement.
