Master in Teaching (MIT)

Start your career in less than a year.

Bryanna loved working with underserved youth. After graduating from the University of Minnesota with a degree in math, she headed for Seattle with one goal: to get her teaching degree. Why did she choose Northwest University? Because she could earn her teaching certificate in one year. And it was the most immersive program she could find. "Student teaching was huge. You learn so much by doing. And having the support of the NU professors to watch me teach and provide feedback was invaluable." Today Bryanna is teaching 7th grade math at Cascade Middle School.

Our Master in Teaching (MIT) is for post-baccalaureate students seeking their teaching certificate. The program will help you reach two goals simultaneously—you will earn the Master in Teaching degree and at the same time earn the Washington State Residency Teacher Certificate. This can be accomplished in three semesters.

Start your teaching career in less than a year.
