Program Description

The MAT program provides talented liberal arts college graduates with a challenging program of study within their academic discipline while preparing them for careers as secondary school teachers. Open to students with undergraduate majors in the fields of English, mathematics, social studies, and the sciences, the program combines graduate level work in the teaching field with education courses and a 27 week internship under the direction of master mentor teachers in two local Durham public high schools. The 36-unit program takes one calendar year to complete, beginning July 1 and ending in late June the following year.

Other Requirements: A personal interview is required in addition to all Graduate School requirements. Scholarship applications, available at, should be submitted directly to the MAT program by January 15.
