I have just learned that I can earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Southern California, an internationally renowned research institution with 100+ years of history in educating socially active and responsible teachers. The USC School of Education has been ranked #22 in the United States, and #9 among all private universities by US News and World Report. I’d not only get a world-class education, I’d become a part of the elite USC Trojan Family with full USC student status and benefits, participation in commencement ceremonies and free lifetime Alumni Association membership.
The very best part of all, is the degree program is offered online so I wouldn’t have to leave Friday Harbor. The courses combine highly interactive online learning with field-based experiences. I would be learning in my own classroom as I teach. Plus, the program can be completed in as little as twelve months!
Trying to balance work and home can be tricky enough for Amoeba and I and our conflicting schedules without throwing classroom courses into the mix. With an online degree and the ability to do hands-on practicum work in my own classroom or that of a fellow educator makes this degree program very attractive. The last MAT program I looked into wanted me to spend 1o hours in class almost every Saturday for 2 years. That’s insane!
I know a lot of teachers read my blog. If you’re thinking about getting your MAT, the USC Rossier School of Education’s MAT@USC offers both current educators and aspiring teachers the chance to earn their prestigious Master of Arts in Teaching degree with the convenience and flexibility of studying online. Check out the program information for yourself. Make certain you note USC’s groundbreaking tuition reimbursement program designed exclusively for MAT@USC students.
