Online Licensure Programs in Teaching:
Current and Aspiring Teachers
WGU North Carolina offers challenging online teaching degree programs for both current and aspiring teachers. Because WGU North Carolina is part of Western Governors University, a nonprofit, online university founded and supported by the governors of 19 U.S. states, you'll benefit from both superior online degree programs and lower tuition.
WGU North Carolina’s programs are designed to produce highly competent teachers because our degrees are aligned specifically with state standards throughout the country.
WGU is the first exclusively online university to receive NCATE accreditation for its degree programs that lead to teacher licensure, a testament to the fact that WGU graduates "have the knowledge and skills to be effective in helping all students learn."
Each of WGU North Carolina’s online teacher licensure programs includes student teaching in an actual classroom, which cannot be waived or cleared through prior experience. Your demonstration teaching ensures you’ll have the skills and know-how to handle a classroom of your own.
