The Templeton Honors College Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University (Philadelphia) is a 30-hour program that combines online and on-ground courses in order to educate teachers in the history, theory, and pedagogy of classical liberal arts education. University professors and classical practitioners lead small seminars that emphasize thoughtful discussion, deep inquiry, and personal reflection over quantity of content. The program also includes courses on classical education and special needs, reading and the soul, the philosophy of the young person, medieval education, and a series of individual courses on the True, the Good, and the Beautiful.
