MIT, Secondary Education

The Master in Teaching (MIT) in Secondary Education is a rigorous, cohorted program leading to initial grades 6-12 teaching certification from the Idaho State Department of Education. This program is hybrid, in that some courses are online, while others are face-to-face. The program begins each May and includes three semesters: Summer, Fall, Spring.

Interested students must complete a transcript audit with the Program Coordinator to determine whether or not prerequisites have been met.
