Turn your current bachelor’s degree into something more.
If you’ve earned a bachelor’s degree, regardless of academic area, you’ve already got the necessary foundation to get started in our MAT program. Our program offers two pathways – elementary or secondary. Whether you’re looking to change professions, are a recent graduate whose professional ambitions have shifted, or a teaching assistant looking to become a fully-licensed educator, our program is an efficient pathway to a rewarding career.
Elementary and Special Education
You’ll graduate prepared to teach grades K–9 (general education) or grades K-12 (special education).
Secondary and English as a Second Language (ESL)
Carroll offers licensure categories in seven secondary content areas. If you hold a bachelor's degree in one of these or a related area, you'll graduate prepared to teach the specific subject and also be licensed as a K-12 ESL teacher. Carroll's specific licensure areas*:
- English and Language Arts
- Physical Education
- Social Studies
* Subject Assessment required prior to admission
Tuition and Value
Carroll University is committed to providing quality, competitively priced programs. We offer incentives to help you complete your Master of Arts in Teaching degree economically—with additional tuition awards available for current employees in school settings. Upon confirming program enrollment, the tuition cost for candidates will be locked in at the semester rate of the first semester of enrollment, with equal, per-semester costs. That means once you’re enrolled, you won’t experience the annual tuition increase typical at most institutions—and you’ll know exactly what to expect and budget for as you complete your degree.
2020-21 Master of Arts in Teaching Tuition
Carroll University's cost per credit is one of the most competitive in our area.
$511 credit | 36 credits | $4,600 semester | $18,400 total program cost
Candidates currently employed in a school setting are eligible for a tuition award equal to 10% of the first semester’s tuition.
The program is designed to be completed in four consecutive semesters. To maintain the locked-in tuition, a student may delay registration for a maximum of one year.
