Through our Secondary Education major, you will take courses focused on preparing, delivering, and assessing instruction for K-12 students. Pedagogical theories, curriculum development, and teaching methods will be introduced by our dedicated faculty. This program prepares prospective teachers to become facilitators of learning within the school and community and helps you acquire teaching certification in Washington State.

The Instructional Foundations major provides a broad perspective on education, designed to meet the needs of students who wish to have a background in instructional pedagogy, but who do not wish to complete the requirements for teaching certification. Students who complete the program will be prepared to work in settings that require expertise in the foundations of education, such as training programs in business and industry, service programs at educational institutions, private childcare facilities, etc.
