Graduate Programs

K-State has developed innovative programming for college graduates who have earned a bachelor’s degree but now have a calling to teach. Whether your passion is elementary or secondary education, we have a graduate program to fit your needs.

Elementary Pathway

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) opens a new pathway to elementary teaching for those who have earned a bachelor’s degree and meet other admissions criteria. This pathway enables qualified Kansans and residents of other states to earn a master’s degree in 12 months through rigorous online coursework combined with field experiences.

Secondary Pathway
