Make an investment in the type of teacher you want to be with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree. Our full-time, one year curriculum provides comprehensive preparation for recent college graduates as well as those who are returning to college to pursue a career change.
Over the years, our M.A.T. graduates have done very well when it comes to finding a job. All you need to do is look at state data from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. The University of Puget Sound consistently ranks as one of the top three programs in the state when it comes to full time teaching placements in the year following graduation. More impressive is our average placement rate: for the last 11 years it’s been the highest in the state at 82 percent. Even in the most recent survey of employment gathered in 2008, when the economy started its downward turn, we were able to place 71% of our graduates in full time positions. Of that group, 96% of them found jobs in the state. Our M.A.T. graduates can and go anywhere in the U.S. and the world, but many choose to remain in the Puget Sound area.
