City University of Seattle offers a state-approved Endorsement program in Mathematics for those interested in teaching math to children in grades five through 12.
CityU of Seattle’s math endorsement program includes college-level math courses in geometry and measurement, calculus, probability and statistics, discrete mathematics, number sense and linear algebra. Then, it ties your learning together with pedagogical courses on math acquisition, secondary math teaching skills, and integration with other content areas.
CityU allows you to earn your math endorsement online, on your own schedule. This means you can plan your schoolwork around your life and complete the program at your own pace. Our faculty of active secondary math teachers will give you the real-world knowledge and skills you need to teach effectively in today’s diverse classrooms. Learn more from an Albright School of Education advisor.
Mathematics has been identified as a high-need area because of teacher shortages, so you may find more opportunity to expand your teaching career when you add a math endorsement. Once you complete the program, you can take the Washington Educator Skills Test (WEST-E ®) to meet your math teacher requirements and earn your endorsement.
Because of teacher shortages, some students may become certified math teachers more quickly through our Alternative Route to Teacher Certification program. And others may prefer to complete our middle level math endorsement program and teach math to children in grades four through nine. Contact a CityU advisor to see which program is best for you.
