This event is for prospective students interested in Florida Southern's adult undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs with the School of Education.
Do you have a bachelor’s degree in Art? Are you a biologist looking for a second career? Do you love math and want to share your passion?
Students are advised to submit applications as early as possible to assure optimal admission consideration.
At Florida Southern College, you can earn a highly regarded MAT degree at one of the top graduate teaching programs in the U.S. — at an affordable cost.
Partnerships with local Polk County schools provide opportunities for internships and assist with job placement upon completing your degree.
You may choose to complete your degree in as little of 4 semesters, plus an internship. The MAT program consists of courses that are 100% online prior to an internship and final semester of student teaching.
This program at Florida Southern College offers students the opportunity for a 70-day internship in a Polk County School classroom for a hands-on teaching (and resume building!) experience. However, students who receive their full Professional Teaching Certificate are exempt from the requirement.
100% of the courses are offered online with the exception of your student teaching internship and course seminar within a Polk County Public School.
Course descriptions are available in the academic catalog.
Florida Southern College reserves the right to revise fee schedules.
*Tuition will be billed prior to the beginning of each semester based on credit hours. Tuition must be paid by the first day of class.
*Prior to admission or within the first 12 semester hours of MAT coursework, a passing score is required on all sections of the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations (FTCE).
**One semester of student teaching is required before graduation.
This program is 100% online excluding the capstone internship which is completed in a Polk County Public School. However, most students receive their Professional Teaching Certificate and transfer into the Master of Education in Transformational Curriculum and Instruction program where no internship is required.
A student is considered full time when taking a minimum of 8 credit hours at the graduate level.
Yes, this program is designed for individuals who have a bachelor’s in an area other than education or do not hold a Florida Professional Teaching Certificate.
Most students complete the program coursework in as few as four semesters then complete the internship during the fifth semester.
You must complete the internship if you stay in the MAT program. However, once you complete your items on the FLDOE Letter of Eligibility, you will earn your Florida Professional Teaching Certificate. At that time, you can be switched to the MED TCI program which includes the same eight online courses, just excludes the internship.
