The Innovative Teacher Certification (ITC) Program is designed to make it possible for practicing teachers without certification to complete the requirements for Missouri certification and to receive an M.A. in Education from Washington University. Classes are offered in the evening, making it possible for practicing teachers to attend courses while continuing to work full time. To see which areas of certification we offer, visit the Certification Options page.
The ITC Program is offered as an M.A. Ed. program through University College. Students entering the program must hold at least a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. Program completion time varies from student to student, based on their program choice and the number of courses enrolled in each semester. Observation and Student teaching generally takes place in each ITC student's own classroom, with university supervisors to mentor each student and document growth over at least two semesters.
