Elementary Education Teaching Certification Post-Baccalaureate

Earn a teaching certification in one year

The UW Bothell Elementary Education Teacher Certification Post-Baccalaureate Program prepares students to become certified teachers in Washington state elementary schools. Upon completion of this highly-structured, one-year course of study, students meet all the requirements to be recommended for Washington State Residency teacher certification.

UW Bothell's "cohort model" post-baccalaureate program progresses students together through a series of hands-on teaching methods courses and student teaching internships, resulting in an enhanced learning community and life-long professional colleagues.

Students in UW Bothell teacher certification programs become teachers who are thoughtful about their own learning, as well as the learning of their students.
