During the professional sequence, students gain knowledge and skills essential to effective teaching and participate in varied field experiences in school classrooms. University faculty, as well as local school district teachers and administrators, participate in the program and contribute to its quality and relevance.

Students completing the elementary, secondary or special education programs are eligible for state certification. The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction sometimes makes changes in certificate requirements outlined in the University's undergraduate catalog and program requirements will reflect this.
