After completing the discipline-specific course requirements for the major (noted above), students will follow the MAT course sequence for either the Integrated Master’s Bridge Plan (Option 1) or the 4+1 Plan (Option 2). At this point, they will begin graduate level courses via the MAT program. There are 36 total credit hours in the MAT program. The MAT course sequence for both options is listed below.*

*The MAT Bridge courses for the Physical Education/Health Education track are slightly different than the standard bridge courses described in this section. Instead of EDU 616, students will take HES 605 and instead of EDU 623, students will take EDU 606. All other MATbound students follow the course sequence below.
