Which Program is Right for Me?
I want to become a certified classroom teacher.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program leads to a Nevada Teacher License and master’s degree. Faculty mentorship thrives in small on-ground classes. This flexible and affordable program is approved by Nevada Department of Education, and leads to teaching credential options in Elementary (K-8), Secondary (7-12), Dual (K-12) and Special Education.
I want to become a principal.
The Master of Arts in Administration (MAA) program for licensed teachers leads to a master’s degree and an advanced endorsement in Administration. A 50 – 50 split between on-ground and online coursework balances scheduling flexibility and personal interaction. With the final research project and internship semester, students apply their coursework in practice.
I am looking for advanced training in educational leadership or TESL.
The Master of Education (M.Ed) in Advanced Teaching and Leadership leads to a master’s degree and a specialization endorsement in Administrative Leadership or Teaching English as a Second Language. Classes are 100% online for maximum flexibility. Class assignments relate directly to your educational goals, culminating in an action plan designed to produce demonstrable change.
I am an undergraduate who wants to fast-track my teaching career.
The Dual Degree Program (B.A. + M.A.T.) program for undergraduate students enables you to gain your bachelor’s degree, teaching credential, and M.A.T. in approximately 5 years.
