Change Lives as a Science or Math Teacher

Each year, hundreds of new science and math teachers nationwide earn a degree and their teacher certification online with WGU. With bachelor’s, post-baccalaureate, and MAT options, you have a wide variety of options to choose from. There are many reasons more aspiring STEM teachers choose WGU than any other U.S. school:

  • Respected. CAEP- and AAQEP-accredited and approved for teacher licensure in all 50 states.
  • High-quality, low-cost. The National Council on Teacher Quality selected WGU’s secondary math program as the very best teacher certification program in the country—and not just among online programs! When they looked at both quality and cost, they came to a resounding conclusion: We’re also the #1 best value!
  • Achievable. Personalized pacing. 24/7 access to your program. One-on-one faculty guidance. Placement support for student teaching. Low tuition charged per term, not per credit (so graduating faster costs less). You can do this!

FASTER

Learn, prove it, move on.

Competency-based education focuses on learning rather than seat time. You’re in the driver’s seat. Each course is a collection of defined competencies—knowledge and skills that employers are looking for from successful graduates. You study on your schedule. As soon as you can prove you’ve mastered the competencies, you take an assessment, pass it, and move on. You spend your time learning new concepts, not rehashing subjects you already know. You can set the pace to graduate early. And in the end, your degree is proof that you’re what employers are looking for!

MORE SUPPORT

Your success is our job.

From before you enroll to after you graduate, our #1 job is a better life for you and your family. Think of it as the best of both worlds; a program that offers complete independence and more support than you ever knew you needed—at exactly the moment you need it! From the Enrollment Counselor who helps you decide if WGU is the right fit for you, to the faculty mentors who are obsessed with your academic progress, to the student and tech support teams who are eager to help you solve any issues you might encounter as a student, you’re never alone—even though you’re online. And even after you’ve graduated, career and alumni support is just a call away.

GREATER VALUE

Smaller investment, bigger returns.

At WGU, affordability means cutting-edge programs at tuition rates that are half what you’d pay at other online universities. It means graduating with little or no student debt. It means scholarship and financial aid opportunities and minimal, transparent fees. It means a flat-rate per-term tuition so that when you save time, you also save money. And it means understanding that value includes quality, flexibility, relevance, and results, not just cost.
