Career and Academic Opportunities

The MAT Secondary English program and concentration provides a pathway to GA teaching certification in English grades 6-12. Many enrollees in the program earn their bachelor's degrees in English from KSU. This Double Owl pathway would incentivize students to continue their graduate work at KSU rather than pursuing an MAT degree at a competing institution.
