School of Education

  • Competence

    Competence:  In the School of Education, you’ll master your role as an educator, demonstrating excellence in the delivery of instruction, the use of technology to support learning, and the ability to meet the diverse needs of students.

Do you want to become an educator with both the competence and the character to bring hope into the lives of students? Is it your goal to become a leader in making our schools work for all children, not just some children? Graduates of the School of Education at Seattle Pacific University are among today’s most sought-after educators, expertly prepared to meet the challenges of their field and serve their communities.

Our broad range of master’s, doctoral, and certification programs prepare outstanding teachers, counselors, principals, superintendents, administrators, and other school leaders.

Interested in seeking teacher certification as an undergraduate? You’ll benefit from a premier teacher education program, including opportunities for diverse experiences within school settings in urban Seattle.

SPU’s Center for Professional Education serves educators around the world. Get ProTeach support, keep your certification current, earn an endorsement, or develop an on-site partnership.
