Templeton’s MAT is classical in both its goals and methods
Through Socratic seminars and the Great Books of Western Civilization, students explore questions of philosophy, history, and pedagogy with the aim of forming teachers who are not just knowledgeable about their discipline and skilled practitioners, but virtuous men and women who love to learn.
Designed for working teachers, the majority of MAT courses take place during two 5-week summer residencies in St. Davids, PA. Other courses are taught online.
