New York M.A.T.

A Relay professor teaches graduate students.

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

The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) 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 improvements in urban classrooms, and it allows our students to practice those skills until they can execute them with confidence.

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