Tab 3: Advisory Board

Program Coordinators and the faculty who teach lead all programs of study, here at William Peace University. Additionally, there are Advisory Boards comprised of experts in the business field who serve as advisors to the program, ensuring what is taught in the classroom is what is needed for the careers of tomorrow.

 

Tab 4: Careers

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. The program at William Peace University was the first education program in the state to offer the dual licensure option of preparation for both Elementary Education K-6 and Special Education: General Curriculum K-12, making program completers not only well prepared to teach but also highly marketable in a tough economy.
