We offer Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) programs for prospective teachers who want to teach in elementary or secondary school settings and for those interested in pursuing an ESOL endorsement. If you do not have a teaching license, the “prospective teachers” programs are for you.The MAT at Lewis & Clark’s Graduate School of Education and Counseling is a 12-13-month program that consists of courses and field experiences leading to a Master’s degree, Preliminary Teaching License, with either a multiple-subjects endorsement (for elementary candidates) or single content endorsement (for secondary candidates), and a K-12 license

We will be recruiting at the October 5, 2021 Virtual Teacher Recruitment Fair, and invite you to visit our representatives.
