The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program aims to develop reflective and transformative teachers capable of working collaboratively with children, youth, their families and communities for the sustainable well-being of educational, social and ecological systems. The mission of the Chapman MAT program is to prepare reflective teacher-researchers who use integrated, developmentally appropriate, and critical pedagogies, and are ready to collaborate within diverse educational communities in order to lead us towards a more economically, socially, environmentally and politically just world. In California, the appropriate credential to teach elementary school is the Multiple Subject Credential.

The Master of Arts in Teaching: Elementary Education allows the candidate to obtain both a Multiple Subject Credential and the master’s degree through an integrated program of coursework, fieldwork, and a demonstration of mastery. Students will take the courses listed below.
