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.

Enjoy a schedule that works
MAT classes are scheduled to work within your schedule. Sessions are held during two summers and in the evening during the school year.

Learn from experienced teachers
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.

Fulfill your dream and be in your own classroom in 14 months with the MAT program at LaGrange College.

New cohorts begin each June, with an application deadline of May 15.
