Combined BS/MAT with Teacher Certification in Health and Physical Education

The Bachelor’s/MAT Dual-Certification Inclusive Education Program provides students with the opportunity to receive both a bachelor’s and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree with teacher certification in both general education and special education.  The program is designed to help teachers develop competencies needed to teach students who have disabilities along with those who do not.

In this program, students complete general education and major requirements and an initial set of coursework in education as undergraduates. As graduate students, they will complete the coursework in education and conduct their fieldwork and student teaching.

Please visit the Teacher Education Program for the required undergraduate professional sequence of courses, overall course outline, and other important Program requirements, guidelines, and procedures. Students also are strongly advised to review the Teacher Education Program Handbook.

120 credits of coursework are required for the baccalaureate degree with a minimum 3.0 overall GPA.  Major GPA requirements differ depending on the field of study. Consult the Teacher Education Program Handbook for more information.
