School Details

William Woods University began more than 140 years ago in the aftermath of the Civil War, in the year 1870. The Christian Church of Missouri, as a work of compassion, founded a school for girls who had been orphaned by the conflict. WWU became a college officially in 1914, and the focus for the next fifty years was on training teachers, a profession built on compassion and the personal commitment to help others grow, values the school has held onto since the beginning. In the 1990s, WWU began offering a wide variety of graduate-level degree programs, geared toward the working adult. Today, students can study on campus, off-campus and online. WWU offers a full range of degrees, from associate's to doctoral, many of which are offered in fully online formats.
