MIT Secondary Teaching (5–12)–earn certification + MEd: a program designed for those candidates who desire an MEd degree and a Washington residency teaching certificate for the middle school, junior high and high school.
This program is available to candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree and did not previously take teaching certification coursework and are interested in receiving both an MEd degree and a residency teaching certificate for teaching in the middle school, junior high and high school. This program requires that candidates complete the equivalent of an approved EWU teaching major prior to admission.
Effective 9/1/09 all candidates for certification must pass a WEST-E or NES subject matter test to receive an endorsement for certification purposes.
Please see an advisor in the education department.
Prerequisites for this program are
- Introductory speech course (CMST 200 or an approved equivalent).
- At least 90% of the endorsable teaching major must be completed.
- Successful completion of the WEST-B (Washington Educators Skills Test-Basic). Contact NESINC for test information.
- Secondary Teaching candidates go through a pre-approval interview process and complete a year-long internship in a middle or secondary school. Satisfactory SAT or ACT scores may waive all or part of the WEST–B requirement.
