Early Childhood Education
LaGrange's Early Childhood Education program doesn't just teach content. It focuses
on philosophy, the professional art of teaching, service, and cultural responsiveness,
Combined B.A. and M.A.T
Undergraduate students who meet the admission requirements for the M.A.T (passing
GACE Basic Skills or a combined SAT score of more than 1000) and those who have
a GPA of 3.0 or higher in their undergraduate studies have the opportunity to participate
in a Combined B.A. and M.A.T. program of study after the completion of 90 semester
hours. Once accepted, candidates may take one graduate course in each Summer Semester.
Candidates may take one three credit graduate course during the Fall, Interim,
and Spring Semesters only if enrolled with twelve undergraduate credits.
Middle Grades Education (M.A.T.)
For future Middle Grades educators, we'll teach you the best ways to get across
information to students in grades four through eight. Whether it's technology in
the classroom, diverse school populations, or students with special needs, there's
always a special consideration for each class you'll teach.
Secondary Education (M.A.T.)
Teaching high school requires both content knowledge and instructional skills.
LaGrange's intensive program of field-based study and careful mentoring will ensure
that you're ready for the challenges of the classroom.
