The Master of Arts in Teacher Education is a 2-year program tailored to the working professional. Coursework is summer intensive, and courses offered during the school year are scheduled in late afternoons and evenings. Courses are theory and practice based. Coursework is completed on the Brigham Young University (BYU) campus.
This program prepares teachers to improve their practice as teachers, become teacher leaders in schools, districts, and other educational settings, and pursue doctoral studies or other advanced scholarship. The courses enhance candidates’ abilities to work with both children and teachers and to promote democracy in schools, also preparing candidates to conduct original research in educational settings.
