Master of Arts
School of Education
Our Master of Arts in Teaching program is for those who want to go beyond teaching and become a highly qualified, sought-after, and impactful teacher. Our students are certified to teach the moment they graduate, and can specialize to focus on elementary education, secondary education, and/or special education. You will learn from faculty who have spent years in the classroom and gain hands-on skills in a student-teaching environment. When you step into your new career, you’ll already be a step ahead of the competition.
Who It's For
This program is designed for students who have recently graduated or those who have completed their undergraduate degrees and may have spent a few years in the workforce already. It’s designed for those who are passionate about teaching, shaping young lives, and ultimately changing the world.
- See the whole picture. There's no program quite like this in the state of Utah: you'll gain a holistic, liberal arts-influenced education that has a focus on student learning.
- Be hands-on. We offer small class sizes, experienced professors, student-teaching assignments in the community, and interactive learning activities. It all adds up to better-prepared educators.
How Long It Takes
Students can complete this program in three to four semesters, depending on their course load.
