Alternative Pathways to Teacher Certification (InMAC) (MEd)

The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College offers the Induction, Master of Education and Arizona Teacher Certification (InMAC) program as an alternative pathway to teacher certification. Participants are full time teachers of record on the Teaching Intern Certificate from the Arizona Department of Education while completing classes for the MEd and certification one night a week at the Downtown Phoenix campus. 

This program offers coursework leading to certification in one of three areas:

  • Elementary Education (K-8)
  • Secondary Education (6-12)
  • Special Education (K-12 mild-moderate disabilities)

InMAC program graduates learn to utilize critical thinking to solve problems, maintain high expectations for student learning, adapt to changing circumstances and demands and act as agents of change by addressing equitability/social justice issues in a positive, ethical manner.

Students receive meaningful professional guidance from clinical instructors with years of K-12 classroom experience. InMAC clinical instructors serve students in a dual role as both course instructors and supervisors in the field. This full circle mentoring relationship makes it possible for their ASU coursework to inform students’ K-12 classroom instruction and brings students’ day to day problems of practice into their ASU courses.

The InMAC program culminates with an action research applied project in which students research, implement and measure the effectiveness of an intervention to solve a problem of practice in their K-12 classrooms. The project equips students with the means to positively impact academic achievement in their classrooms today and in the future.
