Curriculum & Course Schedule

The Whitworth Master in Teaching Program lets you earn a master’s degree and your Washington state teaching certificate at the same time. Students in the elementary education program must complete 57-61 credits; students seeking a secondary certification must complete 48-50 credits.

Each MIT course is presented as a progressive model to parallel the year-long student teaching practicum. The parallel nature of these two elements allows for meaningful connections and applications between what you're learning at Whitworth and what you're experiencing in the classroom.
