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.
Hear From the Students!
At the end of their time in the MIT program, we asked our now-alumni what they learned. Here are two examples of how they met our Student Learning Outcomes:
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.
The priority deadline for submitting Spokane MIT Program applications is November 15. Complete applications will be considered on a space-available basis until April 1.
