Teaching – Combined Bachelor’s/Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

Montclair State offers several combined teaching programs in a variety of subject areas. All combined programs uphold the department of Teaching and Learning’s commitment to inclusive education, in which we prepare highly trained educators who make a vital contribution to New Jersey schools through promoting quality inclusive practices for students, both with and without disabilities, to learn together in the same classrooms. Our goal is to ensure that all children are valued, active participants in a diverse, democratic and inclusive society.

The Combined Bachelor’s/MAT with Dual Certification program is a 5-year program that leads to teacher certification in a desired subject area, teacher certification in Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSD), a baccalaureate degree and a master’s degree. Interested students must apply to and be admitted to the Teacher Education Program as an undergraduate. Students must successfully complete the undergraduate portion of the program in order to be admitted to the Graduate School and complete the one-year master’s portion of the program.
