SAU responds to teacher shortage with new MAT tract
To help fill the need in Arkansas for the escalating teacher shortage, a new Masters of Arts in Teacher in Elementary Education program was approved by the Southern Arkansas University Board of Trustees at its quarterly meeting held at SAU Tech on Thursday, May 26, 2016.
