City University of Seattle’s Master in Teaching (MIT) program is designed for post-baccalaureate students who wish to pivot into a certified K-8 teaching role. With CityU of Seattle, you can earn a Washington State Residency Teaching Certificate and a master’s degree.
When you enroll in our Master in Teaching program, you may choose an elementary education or special education emphasis or opt to pursue a dual focus. Additional dual endorsement topics include reading and English Language Learners (ELL).
CityU’s Master in Teaching is currently the only online teacher certification program approved by the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) in Washington state. You can complete the majority of your coursework online while benefiting from a dedicated local faculty who will mentor you throughout the coursework and internship portions of your learning.
If you are a more experienced educator, you may be able to participate in our performance-based program which allows you to demonstrate mastery of skills by submitting assignments, projects, tests, portfolios and reports that you plan independently with a faculty mentor.
CityU’s Albright School of Education is a fixture in Washington state, graduating over 300 teachers each year. We are accredited by the Washington State Professional Educator Standards Board, and our graduate job placement rate is consistently above the state average.
Faculty and mentors are all current master teachers, which means you’ll learn the most relevant teaching practices and start your classroom teaching career with an established network and an awareness of current district initiatives.
