My Morningside experience has been wonderful. They make it simple to start or complete your MAT online, and it fits both my work and family schedule. The professors are knowledgeable and willing to help, and the program is a great fit for my needs as an educator. My advice to someone considering enrolling in the program is to check out the variety of courses offered or learn more about the faculty. They make the program truly exceptional.
