George Fox University Teaching Programs

Qualified candidates interested in pursuing a teaching degree and license are invited to apply for enrollment in George Fox University’s full-time Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program by the application deadline of Monday, Feb. 1, 2010.

The MAT full-time format consists of three semesters of study on the university’s Newberg, Ore., campus. Classes are held weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the next cohort of classes scheduled to begin in June of 2010.

George Fox’s Master of Arts in Teaching program offers initial licensure at all four levels of authorization – early childhood, elementary, middle school and high school. MAT candidates earn two authorizations at adjacent levels and choose between early childhood/elementary, elementary/middle school or high school/middle school.

Candidates entering the MAT program are expected to have developed breadth and depth of content knowledge by completing an appropriate bachelor’s degree, providing the foundation for professional education courses and field experiences in schools.

The MAT program includes a study-abroad opportunity for students in all formats. For 2010, this option will take candidates to Quito, Ecuador, for a three-week trip May 2-23. Participants will live with a host family, visit schools in the morning and take Spanish classes in the afternoon. The experience is designed to help pre-service teachers be better equipped at interpreting and understanding the community and cultures represented in the school.

The trip also will help candidates develop empathy toward culturally and linguistically diverse students in the United States.
