The Bard MAT's California program includes both an urban pathway (Los Angeles) and rural pathway (Tulare). This year-long program begins in September and leads toward a Master’s degree and California single subject credential in English Language Arts, Social Science, Science: Biology, or Mathematics.
Urban Pathway: Los Angeles
The CA Program’s urban pathway is headquartered at the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) campus—the site of Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA), the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s premier El Sistema-inspired teaching program, and the Longy/Bard MAT. Students engage in graduate level coursework in their discipline and in education and also complete full-year student teaching internships in partner LA public schools.
Rural Pathway: Tulare
The Rural Pathway program is based in Tulare, California (located in the Central Valley). Students take classes at the Tulare campus and complete full-year student teaching internships in local school districts in Tulare and surrounding communities.
The BardMAT in California works with many local public schools in both urban and rural settings. Below is a list of the some of the schools we are currently working with.
