Meeting Times

Candidates will attend classes approximately one night per week over a 21 month period from 4:30 to 8:45 p.m. The Team Seminar courses meet one day per month during each academic school year. The summer course meets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for one week.

Graduation Requirements

All coursework must be completed within five years of admission. A cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 must be maintained; a grade of D is not acceptable toward satisfying degree or certification requirements.

The MATL program is offered at a limited number of sites approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Wisconsin Education Advisory Board. Completion of the MATL program qualifies graduates who are certified in an approved content area to apply for the Illinois teacher leader endorsement.
