William Woods University has been preparing teachers for most of its 133-year history. Currently, more than 80 WWU students are pursuing either majors or minors in education. WWU offers majors leading to teacher certification in elementary education, middle school education and special education.
Students wishing to teach at the secondary level take certification courses in education and major in art education, English education, mathematics, physical education, social science education, speech and theatre education or unified science.
An early childhood education endorsement is available for those wishing to work in preschools.
The Graduate & Adult Studies program at William Woods offers master of education programs in both administration and curriculum/instruction in locations throughout the state. In addition, WWU was recently approved to offer the Specialist of Education in School Administration program. This degree will prepare educational administrators to be certified for the superintendent’s certification.
