Secondary and Middle Level Teacher Certification M.Ed.

Program Update

We are in the process of making substantive changes to our graduate education programs to ensure we maintain top-tier academic programs that meet the needs of our prospective students and state needs for teacher education. The M.Ed. in Middle Level/Secondary Certification will undergo modifications in the 2018-2019 academic year in our efforts to ensure we continue to meet these goals.

The M.Ed in Middle Level/Secondary Certification will pause admissions until 2020 to undergo a rigorous revision to ensure that the program is preparing future middle/secondary teachers in innovative, affordable ways that meet the needs of our community’s children.

With the Middle Level/Secondary Certification and General Masters of Education programs, the School will engage with school district partners, alums, and its advisory board to conceptualize its new programs.  We anticipate many of the distinctive elements of the programs will remain in place, such as the dual certification options and the rich experiences that many of our candidates have had in Mukilteo, Everett, and Shoreline School Districts.

To be kept informed of the latest developments on our Masters’ programs, please sign up for our graduate programs mailing list.
