Master of Arts in Teaching Program Approved by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools

Covenant’s new master of arts in teaching (MAT) program has received approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). "We approve the master of arts in teaching degree program,” wrote SACS president Belle Wheelan, “and wish you and your colleagues much success with it.”

"This is exciting news for us," said Prof. Rebecca Dodson, associate dean of the master of education program, who has been working with the MAT committee in the education department. "The last step now is for approval from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission in March during their on-site visit." Interested students should consult the MAT website early in 2011 for application and financial aid details. The MAT program will begin offering classes in June, 2011.

"I love being an elementary education major and having the close-knit community of elementary education majors. Covenant’s education department excels at providing opportunities for students to be in the classrooms throughout the entire degree program, even as early on as first semester of your freshman year in Intro to Teaching. I have really enjoyed spending time down at a school in Chattanooga this semester to give me hands-on experience to relate to what I am learning in my coursework."
