Applied Academic Teaching at MTA

 A Value-Add Degree

We see it as our mission to equip students—the leaders of tomorrow—with the tools that will allow them to be attuned to the different streams of knowledge: to recognize, enable and partake in the polyphonic processes of knowledge generation in their respective area of studies. To that end we provide students with ample opportunities for unmediated field experiences— from curricular training seminars and for-credit internships to volunteering options and activism  scholarships. Rigorous guidance in class provides students with the theoretical tools to analyze their experiences and use them to build new knowledge. These experiences contribute to the incremental social impact that MTA drives, while also leaving lasting impressions on students which often influence their careers, and granting them considerable advantages in the job market.
