"My experience in the Master of Arts in Teaching program at Webster University was inspiring. I appreciated the opportunities it afforded to truly reflect on my educational philosophy and pedagogy. The course work gave the time and tools needed to experiment with ideas in an encouraging and accommodating environment. The dedicated faculty provided relevant curriculum that was thought-provoking and designed to enlighten and engage the learner. I enjoyed my time at Webster and am a more effective teacher as a result of the MAT program."
