The MAT program prepares teachers through real-world study. Each student is guided
by mentors from among the LaGrange College faculty and faculty from Troup County
high schools and middle schools. These program strengths combine to transform new
teachers into exemplary professionals.
Get in the classroom quickly
The MAT program allows you to begin in June of one year and finish in July of
the next. In just over one year, you can be teaching and earning master's-level
pay (about $38,000 in Georgia in 2009 for first-year teachers).
A schedule that works
Classes for MAT students are scheduled to work within your schedule. Sessions
are held during two summers and in the evening during the school year. It's even
possible for you to be in the classroom with a provisional teaching certificate
while you're taking graduate classes at LaGrange College.
