Upon successfully completing the program, you will earn a Master of Education degree and your Washington State Residency Teaching Certificate in one or more of the endorsement areas listed above.
Overview of the Program The program is designed to be completed in six consecutive quarters. Each fall, a group of students will begin the program as a cohort and progress together to complete the Master of Education in the spring of their second year. Students in the cohort may pursue endorsements in any of the five endorsement areas (Biology, English/Language Arts, History, Mathematics, and Social Studies).
During each quarter of field experience, students engage in reflective seminars in which they examine the professional role of the teacher and the complexities of work in schools. They experience a holistic program, not merely a sequence of loosely connected courses and classroom experiences.
This is the general schedule for the program. The schedule may be adjusted in future academic years as the program is typically in a state of continuous change and improvement.
Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution; AND Transcript Evaluation to ensure completion of appropriate courses in endorsement area; AND 3.0 GPA in the last 90 quarter credits or 60 semester credits of graded upper-division coursework; AND 60 hours of work with secondary or middle level youth, with at least 30 hours in U.S. public high school classrooms.
