Overview

The combined program in secondary education is designed to provide qualified students the means to complete the requirements for a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, science, history, English, or a related field, and a master’s degree in secondary education in a period of five years (including one summer). 

Education

The key feature of the program is that students take 3-6 credits of graduate coursework that will count for the student’s undergraduate and graduate program. Students will apply to take the 3-6 hours of graduate credit in fall of their senior year to begin graduate coursework in the spring semester.

Students will apply to the Graduate School in the spring of their senior year to continue the program. The MAT cohort begins summer 1, so students must be fully admitted before then. 

This Teacher Licensure in Secondary Education from University of North Carolina Wilmington is designed for students currently in the B.A. or B.S. programs in mathematics, science, history, English, or a related field.
