Care about social justice? Become a teacher and change the world!
Brandeis University was founded on principles of social justice. Our MAT program provides you with the tools to make real social change through a year-long teaching internship with dedicated mentor teachers in exciting urban, suburban, and day schools, a cohort structure for a true learning community and our exceptional faculty attention. We will challenge you intellectually and practically, we will ask you to take risks, and we will support you while you do.
We invite you to come to speak with an advisor. Learn about the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program in Public Elementary, Secondary, and Jewish Day Schools. Our secondary Concentration offers the following discipline: Biology, Chemistry, Chinese, English, History, Mathematics, Physics, Tanakh.
