Request Information and Application
The Master In Teaching program with Special Education Endorsement integrates a well-respected preservice teacher education program with a special education endorsement in six quarters of study. In many programs this requires two years of study. Students in this full time program are prepared to teach in elementary or secondary general education classrooms and in special education settings, making graduates of the program highly desirable to school districts.
The sequence of courses blends general education and special education coursework with a variety of field experiences creating a highly integrated and cohesive program of study. Students admitted to the MIT with Special Education Endorsement program begin full time coursework in early March of each year.
The program’s curriculum includes comprehensive education theory and research following the themes of individualization, ethical responsibility, and the use of technology as an essential educational tool. Internships in regular and special education classrooms put pre-service teachers in touch with the world as it is lived by their students.
Program Start DateThe MIT SPED program begins in early March. Please note that the MIT SPED program begins three weeks prior to Seattle University's regular quarter schedule.
