Western’s Master in Teaching degree is an affordable, night-time program for secondary teachers that allows students to work during the day through most of the program. The program’s cohort environment and small class sizes create a collaborative learning environment. After 7 quarters, including student teaching, students graduate with a Residency Teaching Certificate and a Master in Teaching degree from a university recognized nationally for excellence. Students can complete their student teaching requirements in local schools and at global locations.
