The MAT in Physical Science degree was developed for high school and middle school subject area teachers who have an initial license in chemistry, earth science, general science or physics and are seeking a professional license in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This MAT program is defined to meet the “appropriate master’s degree” requirement, which is part of the criteria for professional stage licensure, as set forth in the most recent Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education licensure regulations.
