Candidates apprentice in a school for 20 hours a week in the first semester and fulltime during the second semester under the supervision of a mentor teacher. Throughout the school year, interns attend graduate courses and seminars as a cohort in the afternoons on the Main Campus. Certain areas of certification may require evening and/or Saturday courses.

At the end of this full-time program, successful candidates receive their master’s degree and certification in their field of study. One hundred percent of 2013 and 2014 Masters of Arts in Teaching graduates received job offers.
