WGU offers challenging online teaching degree programs for both current and aspiring teachers. Because WGU is a nonprofit, online university founded and supported by the governors of 19 U.S. states, you'll benefit from both superior online degree programs and lower tuition.
WGU’s programs are designed to produce highly competent teachers because our degrees are aligned specifically with state standards throughout the country.
WGU is the first exclusively online university to receive NCATE accreditation for its degree programs that lead to teacher licensure, a testament to the fact that WGU graduates "have the knowledge and skills to be effective in helping all students learn."
Each of WGU’s online teacher licensure programs includes student teaching in an actual classroom, which cannot be waived or cleared through prior experience. Your demonstration teaching ensures you’ll have the skills and know-how to handle a classroom of your own.
