For the second straight year, WGU's Teachers College has been honored with high rankings on the National Council on Teacher Quality's annual assessment of the nation's 2,400 teacher prep programs.
WGU's online, competency-based teacher-preparation programs were recognized for their quality in educating the nation's future teachers in several ways:
- WGU is No. 1 in secondary education…
- WGU is No. 16 in elementary education, one of only 26 elementary programs to be recognized for high quality…
- WGU is one of only 10 universities to have two top-ranked programs…
…out of 2,400 programs nationwide!
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.
WGU's Teachers College is the first exclusively online provider of teacher education to receive accreditation for its teacher licensure programs from NCATE, the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. It offers 30 bachelor's, master's, post-baccalaureate, and endorsement preparation programs for aspiring teachers as well as already-licensed teachers.
