Undergraduate 5-year Master of Arts in Teaching

Rice University’s 5-Year Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program affords the opportunity for motivated undergraduate students to earn graduate credit toward their MAT while simultaneously completing their Bachelor’s degree.

Students earn their Bachelor’s degree while majoring in the subject(s) they plan to teach while also taking graduate level professional education courses. The Rice University Bachelor’s degree is conferred upon completion of undergraduate studies and the MAT and Texas Teacher Certification is awarded one year later after completion of the teaching internship. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how our program can complement your undergraduate studies and further your professional growth and career goals.
