Request Information and Application
Students seeking an endorsement in elementary education will earn a certificate to teach kindergarten through eighth grade. The state requires content knowledge to teach the Essential Academic Learning Requirements. Seattle University expects applicants to have prior coursework in mathematics*, history, geography, civics, economics, physical science, life science and the arts. All elementary applicants must complete the endorsement coursework outlined in the Elementary Endorsement Verification Form. This coursework must be completed prior to starting the MIT program for fall entry. For spring entry, applicants may complete outstanding prerequisites during summer quarter following their first quarter of classes. All candidates must complete prerequisites by August 10 of the year they begin the program.
In order to aid elementary applicants in fulfilling these prerequisites, the MIT faculty has developed one credit modules that applicants may complete in certain designated subject areas.
*The math course that fulfills the elementary math requirement is a "math for elementary school teachers" course. This course may not be taken in an online format. Click here for a list of approved courses available at local area colleges and universities. Applicants have the option to take a math competency test that will exempt them from this requirement.
Middle School Endorsement
Elementary applicants may add a middle school endorsement in humanities, science, and/or mathematics. The requirements for each are listed on the Middle School Endorsement Verification Form.
