Accelerated BA/MAT Program Now Offered

Obtain your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in teaching in less than 5 years with our accelerated Master of Arts in Teaching program.

Warner Pacific BA/MAT programNew and transfer students starting at Warner Pacific in Fall 2014 now have the opportunity to gain both their bachelor’s degree and their master’s degree in less than 5 years saving an average of $34,000 in tuition expenses.

Our graduates can begin teaching in middle or high school with their Oregon and/or Washington teaching licenses in less time and potentially earn more money than fellow first-year teachers who have yet to finish a master’s program.

The typical undergraduate secondary licensure program at other colleges can take 5 or 6 years to complete. Students following that track would still need to earn a master’s degree within 10 years after graduating with their bachelor’s degree.

Our program is unique. With a tuition that is 25% lower than other comparative programs, students will save an average of $34,000 and earning both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in less time. This is the Warner Pacific way.
