Graduate, Master's Degree

The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Special Education is an initial certification program designed for candidates who have completed the baccalaureate degree in specific majors. Generally, applicants for the M.A.T. program are expected to meet the stated admissions requirements. 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.

**Georgia Professional Standards Commission is currently reevaluating the GACE PAA requirement. Should the GaPSC vote to remove this requirement, it will no longer be required for admission effective July 1st, 2022. Please contact your admissions advisor with any questions you may have regarding this requirement.
