Master of Arts in Elementary Teaching

Make a real difference in the lives of others. The M.A. in Elementary Teaching program can help you transition into a new career as an elementary educator. Our program will prepare you to manage K-6 classrooms and meet the needs of elementary students. You’ll learn what it takes to be an effective instructor who can guide and mentor students toward success. You’ll also master the foundations of literacy, learn how to integrate digital technology into your instruction, and ultimately enter the classroom with student teaching experience. This program leads to initial elementary teacher certification** in Indiana if you have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education. It is not designed for teachers who already have initial teacher certification, other than those graduate students who have completed a Transition to Teaching (T2T) program.

This degree incorporates all Transition to Teaching certificate coursework that leads to initial licensure, plus additional courses in elementary pedagogy and leadership. f you don’t reside in Indiana, you should determine requirements to apply the Indiana initial license for teacher licensure in the state where you intend to teach.

**The M.A.T. and T2T programs are approved by the Indiana Department of Education for an initial teacher license. In addition to completion of the M.A.T. or T2T, Indiana has other teacher licensing requirements, including but not limited to CPR training and suicide prevention training. All graduates must first obtain an initial teaching license in Indiana before applying for a teacher license in their own state. However, states may have additional licensure requirements. Students are solely responsible for determining whether they are eligible for initial licensure in the state in which they intend to teach. It is vitally important that students know before enrolling and be continually aware of their own state licensure requirements.
