Master in Teaching, Renton

MIT Application Deadline

Spring 2025

Program Information

The Master in Teaching (MIT) with emphasis in Multilingual Education program is designed for candidates who wish to complete a master’s degree with recommendation for Washington State Residency Certification to teach at the secondary level (middle and high school) and gain an endorsement in multilingual and/or bilingual education. This program is specific to initial certification only.
The Renton MIT program can be completed in six to seven quarters including the student teaching (internship). Dual language programs are growing throughout Washington State and districts need multilingual teachers trained in the methods of content and language teaching.
Our MIT program has a strong social justice focus and we are looking to recruit teacher candidates that have a commitment to addressing inequities in the schooling system and are looking to deepen their understanding of privilege, equity, and multilingual education. The program is designed to support professionals working in multilingual settings who are employed by school districts in South King County. Next entry is Spring 2025. Contact us today to learn how to join this program!
