If you are passionate about helping others learn, earning an online teaching degree to become a teacher is an excellent way to apply your skills. Our online university environment allows you to complete your teaching degree and prepare for teaching certification.
Before becoming a licensed teacher, you must meet all of Alaska’s initial teacher certification requirements, including:
NOTE: Alaska requires two 3-credit courses for standard certification: Alaska Studies and Multicultural/Cross-Cultural Communication. These requirements must be met at an Alaska institution within the first two years of your initial certification in order to be eligible for standard certification. These courses are NOT offered at WGU.
Note: Listed requirements are current and are subject to change at any time, even during enrollment.
For the most current information about a teaching degree in Alaska, please check the Alaska Student Handbook article.
