Art Education (MAT)
The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) in Art Education leads to initial certification and is designed to meet the needs of candidates who hold a completed B.A. or B.F.A. degree in art. The 46-credit hour program is designed for those who wish to teach in a P-12 setting.
The Master of Arts in Teaching in Art Education program has been approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for initial teacher certification. Candidates from other states may be eligible for certification under the Interstate Certification Compact. The program is available on the Demorest campus only.
In order to register for student teaching or take the capstone course in any program (whichever occurs last), MAT candidates must successfully pass the appropriate Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) tests(s) before registration for the final semester of coursework in the program.
