To help meet the urgent nationwide need for elementary school STEM teachers, WGU offers an affordable, accredited, online Master of Arts degree program in Mathematics Education (K–6). This program provides already-licensed teachers with a greater knowledge and proficiency in number series and functions, graphing and proportional reasoning, geometry and statistics, equations and inequalities, and finite mathematics. The Master of Arts, Mathematics Education (K–6) is recognized by all 50 states. WGU’s Teachers College is CAEP-accredited.
WGU holds the same accreditation as many state universities. With unparalleled online flexibility, students can complete most of their coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from the competency-based learning model, which lets them pass most courses as quickly as they prove mastery of the material, making it possible to accelerate their progress and potentially graduate faster. Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.
