Teacher working with students

Carroll University is now accepting applications for its Master of Arts in Teaching program. The program offers an opportunity for anyone with a bachelor’s degree, regardless of academic area, to be prepared to teach in just 17 months. Our convenient, accelerated format provides graduates of the program with a master’s degree and dual licensure in general and special education for grades 1-8. 

The 36-credit Master of Arts in Teaching program has been designed to fit a professional’s schedule with a cohort model that meets in person just one weekend a month until the final semester when student teaching takes place. Online coursework is also completed weekly throughout the semesters of the program. 

“Many people feel called to the teaching profession at various points in their lives. The Master of Arts in Teaching honors those who hold a bachelor degree in other fields with an opportunity to become a teacher through an engaging, relevant and expedited program,” said Kathrine Kramer, director of graduate programs in education at Carroll University. “Our schools need teachers who are passionate about and committed to making a difference for each and every learner and the Master of Arts in Teaching prepares educators for a fulfilling career in teaching.”

Other highlights of the program include a locked-in, per semester tuition rate which includes all books and reference materials for the program, a supportive learning community, a focus on innovative and inclusive teaching approaches and more.
