Brown University Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

Brown U shieldLEARN. LEAD. TEACH. The Brown University Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program is a 12-month (June to May) graduate program for students wishing to pursue careers as teachers. Leading to teacher certification in elementary (grades 1-6) or secondary English, History/Social Studies, or Biology/Science (grades 7-12) education, the program combines practice and theory through coursework and student teaching placements. Multiple student teaching placements provide a variety of learning contexts for each MAT student. The program is intentionally small in size, ensuring that students receive personal guidance from professors and mentor teachers. Financial aid is available in the form of tuition scholarships and is awarded on the basis of financial need, past performance and evidence of potential success in the program. The strongest applicants may apply to the Urban Education Fellows program, which provides tuition forgiveness in exchange for a commitment to teach in Providence-area urban public schools for three years following graduation.
