Undergraduate education program overview

The University's education program insures that all students have knowledge in the liberal arts and experience in the classroom. 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.

Our program is certified!
The education program is approved by the Washington State Board of Education under the 1998 revised performance-based standards. 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 that take precedence over requirements outlined in the University's academic catalog.
