Newark M.A.T.

A Relay professor teaches a large group of graduate students.

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 urban classrooms, with unmatched opportunities for practice.

Relay Newark Dean, Jamey Verrilli, explains something to students.

The M.A.T. 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 urban classrooms, and it allows our students to practice those skills until they can execute them with total confidence.

Throughout the program, M.A.T. candidates learn from faculty who have helped their own K-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 K-12 academic performance and character development.

This M.A.T. has been selected by Newark Public Schools as an approved district graduate school program. To learn more about the Newark M.A.T. program, check out the video below of Relay graduate student Hooman Behzadpour, a high school math teacher in Orange, New Jersey.
