Master of Arts in Teaching in General Education
Become a teacher with Pacific's Master of Arts in Teaching program. With two locations and a variety of program formats to choose from, find the degree program for you.
Take coursework through our full-time program. This program is ideally suited for those looking to complete their course of study in one year on our Forest Grove or Eugene campuses. Learn side-by-side with master teachers through practicum placement opportunities locally, regionally, and even in Hawai’i! You’ll begin the ESOL endorsement within the MAT program and can finish online while teaching.
If you choose to work or have other full-time commitments, you may prefer our online hybrid model program. While based in Forest Grove and Eugene, these programs offer a combination of face-to-face and online courses over four semesters. You only need to visit campus about once a month, and some coursework may also be offered in your local school districts. Practicum experiences take place in schools close to your home.
The Arbor School Teacher Residency Program is an immersive, two-year, full-time program in partnership with the Arbor Center for Teaching. Courses are offered onsite at the Arbor School in Tualatin and at Pacific's Forest Grove campus. You'll participate fully in all aspects of school life as an Arbor School faculty member. Access free on-campus housing and a monthly stipend.
Start a rewarding teaching career— local school administrators say students from our NCATE-accredited program often enter their careers with the preparation of experienced teacher.
