Nashville M.A.T.

Dean Linda Lentz teaching

A Relay master’s degree signifies more than a theoretical understanding of education. Our M.A.T. program focuses on techniques that make the deepest impact in classrooms, with unmatched opportunities for practice.

The Master of Arts in Teaching experience combines a rigorous, purposeful curriculum with instruction from some of the best educational faculty in the United States. It focuses on concrete skills that lead to dramatic improvements in classrooms, and it allows our students to practice those skills until they can execute them with total confidence for their students.

Throughout the program, M.A.T. candidates learn from graduate faculty who have helped their own P-12 students reach extraordinary success in schools. Their focus on practice, observation, and feedback gives our graduates the tools they need to make a measurable, positive impact on students’ academic performance and character development.

Graduate students participating in the Relay Nashville M.A.T. program will have the opportunity to receive a Tennessee practitioner teaching license during the first year.
