Program Information

The MAT Program enables graduate students to earn their initial teaching certification for Kentucky, grades P-12. The teacher candidates learn to teach through instruction in pedagogy, child development, special education, technology and diversity.

The Department of Teaching and Learning is committed to the highest standards of professional preparation. Our programs have sought and received national accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.

Graduates of initial teacher certification programs at the University of Louisville begin their teaching careers secure in the knowledge that they have been prepared for the real world of classrooms through a rigorous teacher preparation program.

The School of Music provides each student with a copy of the Handbook for Graduate Music Students. Students are expected to read the School of Music handbook and the University Graduate Catalog, and to follow regulations and procedures regarding their specific degree program at the University of Louisville.
