An unparalleled program. Trinity University's teacher preparation program is recognized as one of seven premier teacher preparation programs in the nation.
Our five-year experience offers a combined baccalaureate and professional Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree. Trinity undergraduates intending to enter the M.A.T. program major in the subject they plan to teach, and earn a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science in their academic discipline upon completion of undergraduate studies. Students then continue on into the one year, graduate-level program to earn their masters as well as state teacher certification during the 5th year.
While a vast majority of program applicants are recent Trinity graduates, each year, a number of highly qualified post-baccalaureate students from other universities are accepted into this one-year graduate program.
