Elementary Endorsement Summer Modules

Elementary Endorsement Summer Module Enrollment 

Step 1

Determine which course(s) you need to enroll in to meet the content requirements of the elementary endorsement. This can be done by completing the Elementary Education Endorsement form and then meeting with an advisor. The elementary endorsement form provides detailed directions and outlines the content areas for which you must document coursework.

The following list are the one-credit summer modules available to students. Please email mit@seattleu.edu for a copy of the syllabus to get an understanding of the course content/courseload:

  • History Module
  • Civics Module
  • Geography Module
  • Economics Module
  • Life Science
  • Physical Science
  • Visual Arts

Current three credit summer courses available:

  • Math for Elementary Teachers 

Step 2

Review the following information before beginning any of the courses:

  • The courses are offered as Seattle University continuing education credits. These continuing education credits cannot be transferred into undergraduate or graduate programs. 
  • These courses are only for elementary education students that are admitted to the Master In Teaching Program at Seattle University. Students should plan to dedicate at least 30-40 hours to each one credit course.
  • The modules are designed for independent learners who do not need ongoing support. If you need regular support and interaction, please enroll in an undergraduate course at a community or four-year college. The exception to this is the Math for Elementary Teachers course. This is a traditional, three credit class that meets on campus.
    • Please Note: if you elect to complete any outstanding content requirements by enrolling in an undergraduate course at a community or four-year college, your course must be pre-approved by the MIT Program before enrolling. Admitted students can request course approval by following the Provisions Advising Form directions, provided in Canvas.
