Master in Teaching
Enhancing your teaching ability has never been easier.
About our Program
The Master in Teaching (MIT) program at Washington State University Spokane is intended for those who possess a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education. We have two Master in Teaching programs: 1) a one year general 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. The program is a full-time 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 both live in-person classes, through interactive courses broadcast over the Academic Media System (AMS) and online. We have faculty on Pullman, Tri-cities and Spokane campuses supporting student learning and progress in the program. Your Program Advisor and supervisor for your internship in the public schools will be Spokane-based.
