Are you ready for a meaningful career as a teacher?

The new Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program at Rutgers University–Camden will prepare you to pursue your passion as a teacher in the State of New Jersey and beyond. And the best part is that you’ll learn on the job. After two terms of instruction on our campus, you’ll be in the classroom as a student teacher in a New Jersey school district.

The in-class portion of your program will be completed in a convenient format, with courses offered on weekday evenings after 4 p.m., which means you can continue any existing employment or substitute teacher work for the initial phase of your teaching degree program. Our beautiful Camden campus is in the heart of it all: five minutes from the vibrancy of Philadelphia, steps away from the stunningly revitalized waterfront, and still easily accessible from any point in the Delaware Valley. 

Through this program you’ll be provided with a professional and practical foundation in pedagogy, classroom practices, and theory.

You’ll come away with a solid theoretical background in educational practice, a comprehensive picture of diversity and its role in classrooms and schools, a clear understanding of best clinical practices, and an appreciation of professional practices and responsibilities.
