and extensive teaching apprenticeships in area partner schools.
Bard MAT gives equal time to developing your subject area expertise as well as your knowledge of adolescent literacies, curriculum planning, school cultures, and innovative pedagogies. MAT students will study their subject matter and pedagogy, carry out an independent research project in their discipline, and put their learning into practice as an apprentice teacher. Education courses and descriptions are listed under the discipline coursework for each subject area.
All MAT students complete a substantive research Project in their academic discipline (Academic Research Project). The project is presented at a group symposium during the closing weeks of the Program.
