Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Secondary Education is an initial certification program designed for candidates who have completed the baccalaureate degree in specific majors.

However, Brenau may consider an applicant who does not meet [all] stated requirements, but who, in the opinion of the appropriate department, may be a good candidate for admission to the University. Coursework taken at another regionally accredited institution of higher education will be considered for transfer. This credit will have to match the courses in Brenau’s M.A.T. curriculum. A maximum of six hours of work with a grade of B or above will be considered.The completion of the requirements for the M.A.T. will result in certification at the secondary level (Grades 6-12). The majors which will be considered for Brenau’s M.A.T. are biology, chemistry English, history or related social science, mathematics, physics and theatre (P-12).
