Endorsement Academies

The College of Education's endorsement academies are designed with teacher's schedules in mind. Our programs are developed for educators currently in the classroom wanting to earn additional endorsements while working. Our endorsement programs focus on high need and in demand areas, while offering a social-justice and culturally responsive context that is inherent to Seattle University (SU). All programs are developed and overseen by SU’s faculty and experienced teacher leaders.
