MATC by the Numbers_________
20:1———Student to Faculty Ratio
P-12———Studies focusing on all Grade Levels
MATC students can choose from several concentrations, with up to nine credits of study. They include:
K-12 educational administration,
literacy and language instruction,
socio-cultural perspectives in teaching and learning,
science and mathematics education and
English language learner (ELL) or English as a second language (ESL).
Literacy/Language———Focusing on theory, research and education, this is for students who wish to address issues of language and literacy development.
