Commitment. Collaboration. Transformative Classrooms.
Educators play a key role in confronting rising inequality in cities across the United States. That’s why our Master of Arts in Teaching — designed by faculty in partnership with local educators to respond specifically to real-world challenges — equips future teachers with the tools they’ll need to fulfill the most pressing needs of urban secondary schools in Rhode Island and beyond.
The yearlong MAT program at Brown is unique in blending the best of university and residency-based teacher education programs, combining intensive coursework, immersive teaching experiences, and personalized coaching to prepare teachers to become culturally responsive and impactful educators advancing the cause of justice.
As part of a small, collaborative cohort, our students receive comprehensive, critical, and equity-based preparation for secondary-school teaching careers (grades 7-12) in English, social studies, math, and science (biology, chemistry, or physics/engineering).
Investing in educational equity and opportunities
We are committed to diversity and inclusion in teacher education — and the teaching profession — and don't want cost to be a barrier to entry. That's why Brown has significantly expanded its commitment to merit and need-based aid to MAT students. Students with demonstrated need are eligible for scholarships that cover full tuition, living stipends, health fees, and insurance.
