The Secondary Education program is designed for students who want to become teachers at the middle or high school level. The program leads to a recommendation to the State of Washington for a teaching certificate with an endorsement in at least one subject area. The program requires completion of the Secondary Education professional course sequence, a baccalaureate degree with academic preparation for a qualifying endorsement, and a student teaching internship. The program is firmly backed by current research of effective teaching and promoting student learning, and provides multiple field experiences (including service-learning, practica, and student internship). Early advising is highly encouraged to ensure your eligibility to apply.
