Here's what one of our M.A.T. graduates has to say.

Chelsey Zaharia cropped.jpgMayville State’s M.A.T. program stands out because of how thoroughly it is planned out as the complete teacher prep for those diving into the profession. I love the “small town feel” in the relationships and communication with Mayville State’s faculty while receiving a world-class education.

I felt my instructors were in my corner, rooting for me, and doing anything they could to help me succeed. The courses are challenging, and you will feel proud with every project and course completion. When you receive your degree, you have something to really be proud of.

Mayville State’s M.A.T. program exceeded my expectations all around. The courses were very thorough and allowed me to master relevant topics of study for the teaching field. Even though online, I felt each professor cared for me individually and knew who I was. Communication was always prompt.

I recommend Mayville State’s M.A.T. program because of the convenience of being able to carry on with your daily life while receiving a rigorous education that is going to get you recognized and hired as one among a stack of resumes. This is a program that you will be successful at and will prepare you for the classroom.
