City University of Seattle's regionally accredited B.A.Ed. with Teacher Certification program is designed for individuals who have some college credits and wish to pursue a rewarding career in teaching. City U of Seattle has one of the few programs that allows a student the option of earning an Elementary K-8 Endorsement, a Special Education K-12 Endorsement or BOTH while earning their bachelor's degree.

The Elementary (K-8) program will provide the student with the knowledge and tools needed to teach core curriculum to a diverse population of elementary and middle school children. Subjects covered include: math, science, social studies, health, reading and literacy. The Special Education (K-12) program combines traditional education training with a focus on classes that prepare them to assist children with special needs. The full-time program is designed to be flexible, so a student can study without sacrificing their career. Typically, classes will meet just two evenings a week, plus Saturdays.

College Website: http://degree.cityu.edu/education

City University of Seattle’s  Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education begins in the fall of 2009-10 at three conveniently located community college sites:

  • Green River Community College at the Kent Station
  • Bates Technical College (South Campus) in Tacoma North Seattle Community College in Seattle

This program is designed for individuals who hold an associate’s degree in early childhood education, work in the early childhood field and have the desire to earn a bachelor’s degree. Students have the option of focusing on early childhood administration or education, with the option to earn a P-3 teaching certificate and/or ECE special education endorsement. Other program options include emphasis in Language-Literacy, Infant-Toddler, and/or Bilingual-Bicultural issues in early learning. For those who hold a BA in Early Childhood Education or similar degree, a “certification only” option is also available (contact a Program Coordinator regarding this option).

Most course work will be offered on the community college campus two to three evenings per week and occasional Saturdays.  Some coursework will be available on-line or via telecommunication, depending on student needs and program options. Students employed in early learning sites will be able to use their work setting for much of their program fieldwork while in the program.
