For Current Students


In our program, you will work with several different advisors and supervisors – all of whom have valuable experience and insight to share with you. These include Duke faculty who serve as your academic advisors in the MAT program and in your major field, a faculty member who supervises your independent study work (optional), and your internship supervisor who will work with you during the teaching internship. Read more detail about advising.


The year-long teaching internship is the cornerstone of your master of arts in teaching program. You'll spend at least fifteen hours a week in a Durham Public School. Learn more about the internship.


As part of a results-oriented approach to teacher preparation, the MAT Program requires each student to complete an electronic portfolio and submit it for review prior to graduation and recommendation for licensure. The portfolio will demonstrate development and will therefore be produced over the course of the year, not as a final project. Learn more about the portfolio requirement.
