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 or through weekend intensive programs in Arizona or Texas. The Apprenticeship in Classical Teaching is fulfilled under the mentorship of experienced classical teachers and university faculty.
