MAC: Master's and Certification Program

If you already have a bachelor's degree and want the advanced expertise and salary potential of a master's degree as you begin your teaching career, the Master's and Certification (MAC) Program is designed for you. MAC allows you to work toward two goals simultaneously: educator certification and a master's degree.

MAC is efficient, because nearly all the required certification classes simultaneously earn credits toward a master's degree.

Degrees offered via MAC

The MAC Program offers flexible scheduling that makes it easier to fit in courses, even if you work full time. Courses are offered either at night, online, or both.
