Education (Teacher Licensure Program)

Educating teachers has been WOU’s priority since it was founded more than 160 years ago. Even now, when WOU has dozens of majors, education is the one we’re known for – and no wonder. As an education major, you will have a variety of grade levels and subject areas to focus on, from elementary to high school and language arts to mathematics. You can earn your teaching license, achieve endorsements and get clinical experience, all from WOU.
