Master of Arts in Teaching

Now is the time to begin your move to a future that offers financial stability, emotional and social fulfillment, and intellectual challenge!

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree at Williams and an Arkansas Department of Education license lets you teach in your area of interest.

An Investment in Your Future
A college education and more importantly, an advanced degree (The MAT), will put you in a great place on the school district’s salary schedule.  Districts determine salaries by years of experience and education.  It is even possible to be hired before you complete your coursework.

Schedule Your Own Study & Assignment Time
At last, you can manage your own time to study and complete assignments. Not a morning person? The load is rigorous and comparable to a residential course load, but you get to choose when you study and complete your assignments.  In addition, you have 24/7 technical assistance, whenever you need or want help.

Courses in 8-Week Blocks
Class time is compacted so that the program can be completed in a reasonable amount of time.  This is especially helpful for working adults who have obligations that are not sustainable for a traditional program.  Yes, it is an ambitious plan, but it can be completed in as little as 18 months.  The completion time is up to the individual.

No Hidden Fees
The Williams MAT online program is VERY competitive in costs and VERY high in quality!  Your tuition per course, an internship fee and a graduation fee are made clear before you enter the program.  NO HIDDEN FEES and the Williams MAT guarantee.

A Community of Learners
You will have access to a community of learners from whom you can give and receive a range of knowledge, from the trivial to the profound. You will be in good company with peers who have like goals, aspirations and plans.  Joining this community of learners will enlighten and invigorate you!
