MSU Denver

Master of Arts in Teaching

Whether you’re a new college graduate who wants to teach or interested in changing careers, MSU Denver’s MAT programs will prepare you for today’s diverse classrooms in the areas of elementary education or special education. Both programs will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed as a contemporary educator as well as satisfy requirements for Colorado state licensure.  We also offer both MAT concentrations as Alternative Licensure Programs.
