The Master of Arts in Teaching is a state-approved initial teacher preparation program that is subject to any change in the Florida Administrative Code (State Board of Education Rule 6A-5.066). Students enrolled in this program should remain in close contact with their adviser to keep informed of any program changes implemented to comply with new state requirements.

The Middle School Science Education MAT program was created to allow individuals not certified to teach secondary science (such as noneducation majors or previously certified teachers in another field) to become effective teachers of secondary science.

The program is dedicated to providing all graduates with exceptional pedagogical and subject matter knowledge and skills by focusing on research-based, state-of-the-art best practices in secondary science education.
