WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) -

Williams Baptist College is now accepting applications for its inaugural master’s degree program.

WBC received approval in January from its accrediting agency to offer a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. Classes for the online degree will begin in May, according to Dr. Brad Baine, the college’s academic dean.

Baine said the college will offer a “loyalty incentive” to those who received their undergraduate degrees from Williams, which will include a 10 percent discount on the tuition cost of all MAT courses.

The program will be open to those with a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree with the necessary licensure exams.

Those interested in the MAT program should contact Dr. RoseMary Weaver, dean of graduate and online programs at WBC, at rweaver@wbcoll.edu or (870) 759-4230.
