Welcome to the Master of Arts in Teaching at Rutgers–Camden
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree provides students with a professional and practical foundation in pedagogy, classroom practices, and theory. The program aligns with the NJ Department of Education code requirements and provides students with an academic year (Fall and Spring) placement in a local school for hands-on practical learning experiences (if required).
Students will 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.
