Master in Teaching (MIT)

  • The Master in Teaching Program at Seattle University is a full-time, cohort-based degree program in teacher education that offers both a master's degree in teaching and a Residency Teaching Certificate. Students complete the MIT degree in four academic quarters, or may earn an endorsement in Special Education along with their MIT degree by attending two additional quarters.

    Those who want to be part of the learning and growth of young people, demonstrate strong academic knowledge and skills, and are committed to social justice are encouraged to apply. Because MIT graduates are recognized as outstanding educational leaders, they are in high demand throughout the region.

    The College of Education gives students the option of pursuing either elementary or secondary education as part of their certification. The teacher education program balances classroom experience and coursework; MIT students spend approximately 50% of the program in the classroom.


    The mission of the Master in Teaching program states "the teacher is an ethical and knowledgeable reflective decision-maker who can teach all students to function effectively in a global and pluralistic society."


    The College of Education provides more than $230,000 in scholarships each year. Explore funding opportunities which include scholarships for students of color and under-represented populations.
