Join the College of Education at Washington State University Tri-Cities and pursue a career in education where you will make a positive impact on students, schools, families and your community.

The College of Education at WSU Tri-Cities has programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels where you can become a teacher or an administrator, specializing in your own area of interest. Become an educator and impact the world!


WSU Tri-Cities offers four pathways to becoming a certified teacher, and we can help you choose the path that is right for you!

  1. The Traditional Route BA in Elementary Education is open to WSU students and transfer students from other institutions.
  2. Paraprofessionals working in local schools should explore the Alternative Route to the BA in Elementary Education.
  3. The Teaching Bridge program is a community partnership that provides high school seniors with a pathway to earn and learn their way to a BA in Elementary Education.
  4. If you already have a Bachelor’s degree or are nearing completion of a Bachelor’s degree, please explore our Master in Teaching program which leads to either K-8 Elementary certification or 5 – 12 Secondary certification.


BA students who plan to teach K-8 will pursue an endorsement in elementary education as well as choose to pursue one of the five add-on endorsements listed below.

Existing teachers seeking to add an endorsement should visit the add-on endorsement page.
