Education for Inclusive Environments, BAE (Special Education P-12 & Elementary Education K-8)

Are you passionate about working with all levels of learners? Would you like to teach in an elementary and/or special education classroom setting? Join us! 

Inclusive education is a dynamic and ever-evolving approach to teaching that is transforming today’s schools. In our program, we believe that inclusive education involves the valuing and facilitating of full participation and belonging of all students. Every educator benefits from knowing how to design environments, create supports and facilitate learning experiences that provide opportunities for each student to succeed. Our unique dual endorsement program is designed to provide you with the background and experiences to be an instrument of change in your chosen teaching path!

Our two-year, compacted program offers a facilitated sequence of courses combined with significant practical experience with highly skilled mentor teachers. The curriculum has been co-designed by experts in the field and master teachers. Graduates from our program are highly sought after teachers in both general and special education classrooms and are frequently at the top of candidate pool for teaching jobs.

Upon completion, candidates are eligible for Washington State residency teaching certificates in P-12 Special Education AND K-8 Elementary Education!
