Master in Teaching
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.
