UTEP's College of Science offers 2.5-year, part-time Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degrees for both Mathematics and Science.
The MAT program provides an opportunity for middle and high school teachers (or aspiring teachers) to earn an advanced degree that can enhance their professional career. For example, with 18 graduate credits in mathematics, they meet the SACS requirements to teach dual credit courses.
The courses are offered in the summer and in the evening during the fall and spring semesters to accommodate teachers’ schedules.
