Whitworth University M.Ed Program - Summer Elementary Only

Students in the Spokane Summer Elementary course have the option of simultaneously participating in our cooperative degree program. This program is available at the graduate level: a Master’s Degree with Emphasis in Montessori Education through Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, where the summer elementary course is held. Montessori courses meet on campus during the summer; core education courses are available on campus or online.   Participation in this program also allows qualifying students to apply for federal financial aid (see section on Financial Aid).
