With an MAT in general education, you can become an elementary, middle or high school teacher. Programs are available at our Forest Grove and Eugene campuses in full-time or hybrid formats.

The MAT in Special Education, an hybrid online program, prepares you as a K-12 special education teacher and includes practicum placements in your local school district. Courses are primarily online, with occasional face-to-face coursework at either Forest Grove or Eugene campuses.

The MAT in STEM/ESOL, available only in Woodburn, is embedded in the Woodburn School District, where you gain experience serving diverse multilingual middle- and high-schoolers and earn endorsements as a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics teacher.

The Arbor School Teacher Residency Program, available from the Forest Grove Campus, prepares you as a K-12 teacher in a unique, immersive environment in partnership with the Arbor Center for Teaching.
