Clemson's MAT Middle and Secondary Program: For Career Changers

Clemson University’s College of Education is excited to announce that we are re-launching our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program in middle level and secondary education. This fully online program provides a unique opportunity for individuals seeking to change careers and enter the teaching profession but cannot leave their jobs or responsibilities in their current community to move to Clemson and pursue their degree. This program is for individuals who want to enter the teaching profession in one of the following areas:

Middle Level Education

Secondary Education

Applications are open now, and our first cohort of students will start in Fall 2022. We are eager to enroll students from across the state in this online program. We will need partnerships with districts like yours to create student teaching/internship placements to support this program.

Under the S.C. Department of Education Internship Certificate Guidelines, students from our program will have the opportunity to work as a teacher of record while completing their degrees. The Internship Certificate allows a school district to employ an eligible pre-service candidate as a teacher of record while the candidate completes all student teaching requirements of Clemson University's College of Education. This provision helps districts support new teachers and fill open positions at their schools.
