Master of Arts in Teaching

Individuals who want a change in their careers or are re-entering the workforce, and who bring valuable work and life experience into the classroom.

Pursue the challenge and reward of a career change. Perhaps it came when you were a volunteer coach. Perhaps it came when you became a parent, or when your children began school. Perhaps it was the realization of what a certain teacher meant to you in your life. Or maybe it was just a desire to share your knowledge and experience with a new generation. Your work and your life experiences have led you here. You are being called to teach. Mount St. Mary's has a program to help you realize your calling and your passion.
