Master in Teaching
About our Program
The Master in Teaching (MIT) program at Washington State University Spokane is intended for those who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education. We have two Master in Teaching programs: 1) a one-year MIT program and 2) a two-year MIT program adapted for Paraeducators in the Greater-Spokane region.
The program offers a unique combination of teaching immersion with research-based pedagogy and methods preparation. Each program of study leads to a master’s degree and a Washington state elementary or secondary education teaching certificate. Both programs are cohort-based program. When you join the MIT program, you join a group of students who continue through the program together, providing a supportive learning environment. The program provides students with a practitioner-oriented teacher preparation program with opportunities to become skillful in thinking about and using research to improve education.
The MIT program is offered through face-to-face in-person classes, video-conference classes and online classes. We have faculty on Pullman, Tri-cities and Spokane campuses supporting student learning and progress in the program. Spokane students will have a Spokane-based Program Advisor and field-supervisor for their internship in the public schools.
