Summer is here and its time to think about vacation, fun and... yes, jobs. Some of you might be thinking about a career in teaching so I wanted to pass on this information to you about USC's Master of Arts in Teaching degree program. This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.

The program is composed of flexible and interactive online courses taught concurrently with concrete, local field based experience. Online courses are especially great for the self motivated individual who wants some flexibility in their schedule... it's also especially good for those with already busy schedules (as I'm sure many of you already have)! MAT@USC is an accelerated program offered by the USC Rossier School of Education that allows current and aspiring educators to earn their MA in Teaching via online courses in as little as 12 months. For those of you that work while attending school or have children, this is a great chance to earn your masters via a flexible school schedule from a highly distinguished institution.
USC has a 100-year history of educating teachers and is internationally renowned. US News and World Report has ranked USC's School of Education #9 among all private universities (and #22 out of all universities in the USA). This program is an excellent opportunity to become a member of the distinguished USC family and comes with all the privileges of a full USC student status. Privileges include participation in USC graduation, a free lifetime Alumni Association membership, and the once in a lifetime chance to work with distinguished USC faculty.
Some other benefits of the program include:
• A great tuition reimbursement program along with scholarships opportunities.
• MAT@USC received the 2010 award for "Best Practices Award for the Innovative Use of Technology" from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE).
• Interactive video technology.
More information about the program is also available via the MAT@USC Student Blog where actual students in the program have posted their experiences. The first class of the MAT@USC program just graduated this May.
