students at iu south bendMaster of Arts in Teaching Special Education (M.A.T.)

The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) with a major in special education in the School of Education at IU South Bend is designed to prepare individuals seeking initial licensure in K-12 Mild Interventions for careers teaching children with disabilities in the public schools. This proposed program emphasizes the knowledge, dispositions, and skills required of special education teachers, and incorporates the performance standards of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). The program is designed to meet the licensure requirements of the state of Indiana, achieve national recognition from CEC, and address the standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC). The Master of Arts in teaching program is for individuals who have already earned a bachelor’s degree, but who are interested in becoming licensed as special education teachers in mild interventions (K-12).

Students must take the appropriate state-required examinations when seeking licensure. Students should check with their advisors before registering for any examination.
