WWU Teacher Certification Programs in Bremerton, Everett, and Seattle
Interested in becoming a certified teacher, but don’t have the time for or the access to Western’s main campus teacher education classes? In addition to our traditional academic teacher certification programs, we offers students around the region the opportunity to take evening classes several nights a week toward a variety of teacher certifications and endorsements at three WWU outreach sites:
- Olympic College in Bremerton
- Everett University Center
- North Seattle College
Teacher Certification at WWU Outreach Sites
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.
Students who are accepted into the program take classes at WWU outreach sites in Bremerton, Everett, or Seattle, to earn one of the following:
Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE) with a residency teacher certificate and an elementary education endorsement
Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE) with residency teacher certificate and dual endorsements in special and elementary educations
A Post-Baccalaureate residency teacher certificate with elementary education endorsement.
For more information on program requirements, schedules, and expectations, please review the Teacher Education Outreach Program FAQ handout.
Additional Endorsements and Master’s in Teaching
Western’s outreach program also offers endorsements in Elementary Education and Special Education for teachers who already hold a Washington State Teaching Certificate. We also administer an evening Master in Teaching program at our Everett site.
