The Master in Teaching (MIT) program allows students that already hold a bachelor’s degree to concurrently pursue a Washington State teaching certificate and a master’s degree at WSU.
Our MIT-Elementary (MIT-E) program leads to certification at the elementary (grades K-8) level. MIT-E candidates can hold a bachelor’s degree in any field of study.
Our MIT-Secondary (MIT-S) program leads to certification at the secondary (grades 5-12) level in one of the following subject areas: English, History, Social Studies, Biology, Chemistry, or Physics. Candidates for the MIT-S have typically completed their undergraduate degree in the subject area of interest.
The MIT program combines coursework, classroom experience, and a master’s project. When successfully completed, candidates will have earned both a master’s degree and a teaching certificate. As a result, all MIT students complete both certification and graduate research courses.
