Since 1998, Rockford University has offered the instructional strategies track of the MAT. This track is offered at various off-campus sites throughout the state. The core of the instructional strategies track is a series of courses offered in partnership with PLS 3rd Learning, a course-designer firm with a national reputation for quality. PLS 3rd Learning courses are practical, based on evidence from best practices and research, and are filled with ideas that you can use in your classroom immediately. Foundations of education courses and electives, which are common to all MAT tracks, offer the theoretical foundations that guide your professional practice.
In our most recent quality review, the North Central Association commented that “The Instructional Strategies MAT program fulfills an identified user need perceived by participants and their school officials as being without equal,” and that “University personnel are highly praised for their attentiveness to student needs as evidenced both in written evaluations and team interviews.”
We are pleased that you are considering the Rockford University master’s degree program from the many options that are available to you. Of the programs currently offered, Rockford University is among the most beneficial to teachers. We invite you to take the first step toward earning your MAT at Rockford University.
