Master of Arts (MAT) in Special Education
Graduates with an M.A.T. degree in Special Education receive an initial T-5 license upon completion of requirements and are certified to teach students with mild to moderate disabilities in grades K-12 in the State of Georgia. The program is suitable for individuals with an undergraduate major in any discipline. The MAT also is for individuals who hold a teaching certificate and wish to change certification fields, thereby requiring certification in the new field.
Teachers in special education are in demand, and our graduates are employed in Chatham County as well as surrounding counties, in other parts of the state, and nationally.
