Requirements for Chemistry I-MAT Program (Integrated
Masters of Arts in Teaching)
The Chemistry I-MAT Program integrates a Masters of Arts in Teaching with the BS in Chemistry degree. Students accepted into the I-MAT program begin taking graduate level classes in education starting their junior year (students should apply to the program before then). With just one extra year (5 yrs total), students are able to graduate with both a BS in Chemistry as well as the MAT degree. The I-MAT program is thus a streamlined approach to obtaining a MAT degree. The accelerated program was created to help attract students into the teaching profession. From 2010-2014, students entering the I-MAT program can apply for the PRESTIGE scholarship (funded by the NSF), which will cover the cost of tuition and living expenses.
