A Teacher Preparation Program that Prepares New Teachers to Meet Diverse Learning Needs of Every Student
The newly revised Master in Teaching (MIT) program began in 1990 and is a 1-year, full-time, day-time and in-person teacher preparation program. Upon completing the MIT program in just three quarters, you will graduate with a Master’s Degree in teaching and a WA State Residency Teaching Certificate. As a student in this program, you will specialize in either the elementary endorsement or a subject-specific secondary endorsement. Recent revisions have maintained the social justice values of our established program and strengthen our commitment to anti-racist and humanizing teaching; responding to the needs of our time.
“By being a teacher and showing my face every day, it challenges the status quo.” A Master in Teaching gave Daniel Chavez the chance to connect his talent for math with a career passion that had emerged through roles as a tutor, teaching assistant and after-school activities coordinator. Chavez appreciated the MIT program’s close bond among classmates in his cohort and contact with professors. “The professors really modeled what it was to be a good teacher,” he says.
