Admission prerequisites and course requirements vary depending upon specific program.

Prospective candidates should have a superior undergraduate record and should present evidence of personal qualifications for effective teaching. Those interested in the M.A.T. in secondary or middle school teaching should also possess an appropriate concentration—normally a major—in the subject of the teaching field. All applicants should submit a paper or other piece of work that is illustrative of their writing. Applicants with teaching experience should include a letter of recommendation concerning their teaching.

To qualify for a degree, the candidate must obtain a grade of B- or better in all courses or seminars, although a grade of C in one four-credit course may be permitted on departmental recommendation. Courses for graduate credit may not be taken on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis.
