WGU is training tomorrow's teachers with a high-quality, affordable, accessible education—currently, the Teachers College has 11,000 students and more than 14,000 alumni nationwide.

Our programs are competency-based, so students spend their time learning what they still need to learn to become the best teachers they can be, without wasting time on the skills and knowledge they've already mastered.

They're online, flexible, and affordable, enabling students to study, complete assessments, and advance on their own timetables and within their budgets.

And WGU leads the nation in educating science and math teachers, a major national priority.
