8 Quarters to Teach
Western’s nontraditional teacher preparation program is designed for students who hold a transferable Associate of Arts degree (DTA) from a Washington State community college, have satisfied Western's General University Requirements, or have a bachelor’s degree, and are seeking teacher certification. Programs are offered at two WWU outreach sites:
Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE) with Education for Inclusive Environments major. Program includes residency teacher certificate and dual endorsements in elementary and special education. (See TEOP Education for Inclusive Environments Handbook for detailed information about the program.)
Post-Baccalaureate Residency Teacher Certificate with elementary education endorsement for candidates who hold a bachelor's degree.

We also administer an evening Master in Teaching program at our Everett site.
