Earn a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) at Hollins in Two Ways: Track 1 Hollins offers an M.A.T. program for licensed teachers with two or more years of experience who have a long-term commitment to teaching, want to develop curriculum in collaborative teams, and are interested in assuming leadership roles within their schools. Hollins will match the amount of grants given by the individual's school system. Track 2 Hollins also allows graduates with a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution to earn teaching licensure and the M.A.T. at the same time. This program is ideal for college graduates in many fields who believe teaching is their calling. This distinctive program is the Roanoke Valley's first to give students the chance to meet state requirements for licensure with the bonus of completing an M.A.T. In Track 2 of the M.A.T. program, Hollins will discount the cost of student teaching - a savings of more than $4,080 on the 12-credit course. Licensure-only program Hollins University's graduate programs in education also offers a program for the college graduate who wants to obtain licensure, without pursuing a master of arts in teaching degree, to teach in Virginia as well as in other states. Depending on your situation, this option might make more sense for you than a degree program. Endorsements offered: The M.A.T. program offers endorsements in the following areas: PK-6 PK-12: music (choral only), foreign language (French, Latin, Spanish), visual arts 6-12: English, history and social sciences, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics TEAC Accreditation Hollins University's teacher education program, which serves both undergraduate and graduate students, has earned accreditation by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) until March 2015.
