Master of Arts in Teaching

Loyola University New Orleans is proud to offer its Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. The university has designed this degree program so that individuals can obtain a teacher certification at the middle school (Grades 4-8) and secondary level (Grades 6-12) and a graduate degree at the same time.

The program is designed with working professionals in mind.  Some other courses will be "hybrid" and take place in a secondary school classroom. Individuals currently teaching may use their own classroom at their place of employment for course-related activities.

Programs of Study

In accordance with the requirements of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, Loyola is approved to recommend certification in the following areas:
