The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) is a professional degree program designed to provide teacher certification at the secondary level while earning a master's degree in education. The M.A.T. is a collaborative degree program with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education for Initial Teacher Certification and nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

The M.A.T. is a hands-on program. Students are placed in secondary classrooms for field experiences throughout the 16-month cohort program. A culminating 100-day internship provides classroom experiences in both middle and high Professional Development Schools. Mentor teachers in the schools work collaboratively with M.A.T. program instructors to provide a cohesive learning/teaching/reflecting environment. The program includes hybrid/online learning as well as face-to-face, hands-on experiences. Core courses in the program include foundations, content area methods, instructional technology, classroom management, assessment and the inclusive classroom. Students take two semesters of methods courses specific to their own content area. While in the SU program, teacher candidates conduct action research on their own teaching experiences.
