Welcome to Secondary Education!
The Secondary Education program is designed for students who want to become teachers at the middle or high school level and leads to recommendation by the State of Washington for a teaching certificate. To learn about the core values that guide our program, see the department's Guiding Principles.
WWU freshmen and new transfers will focus to have all General University Requirements and the Writing Proficiency complete, and declare a major. Check the Endorsement page for the list of aligned majors and advisors in the subject you want to teach.
To be eligible to apply to Secondary Education you will need to complete most/all of the academic coursework (there are exceptions for Music, PEH, and Computer Ed.). For post-bac. or non-WWU applicants, you must provide evidence of coursework that meet your endorsement requirements. Early advising is encouraged to ensure your eligibility to apply- contact Woodring Admissions at TeacherEd.Admission@wwu.edu.
