Joint MGH Institute and Regis College Graduate Program

Master of Arts in Teaching Reading (MAT)

To help alleviate a local and nationwide shortage of teachers with expertise in reading, the MGH Institute and Regis College have created a new partnership in which graduates will receive a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with a concentration in reading.

The MGH Institute and Regis College each offers 18 credits toward the 36-credit master's degree. As a student of the program you will take reading courses, including practicum, at the Institute, and supporting education courses at Regis.

Regis College will administer the MAT program and issue the master's degree. Visit the Regis College Web site for admission requirements, program information and curriculum.

Course Registration

Courses may be taken concurrently through Regis and the MGH Institute. Registration for Institute reading specialist courses must be completed through the Institute; and the Regis courses through Regis.

To be eligible for the MGH Institute/Regis tuition rate for Institute courses, you must have applied to and been accepted by Regis College for the MAT program.  Proof will be required at the point of registration.
