Education

The education major was specifically designed with help from the Wake County Public School System -- people who understand what teachers need to know and the skills they need to master. WPU's program is unique since it is a "blended" program where students earn licensure in both elementary education (K-6) and in Special Education: General Curriculum (K-12).
