Online elementary education program named among best in the nation
The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s online elementary education bachelor’s program has been recognized by BestColleges.com as one of the top in the nation.
“We are proud to once again receive this recognition for our online elementary education program,” said Karen Heikel, Executive Director of Alternative Delivery and Outreach at UW-Superior. “This reinforces the high academic standards and exceptional value this program provides.”
With more than 100 years of experience in training teachers, UW-Superior is the only institution of higher learning in the Twin Ports to receive this accolade. The Teacher Education program offers an elementary education major that prepares students to obtain certification to teach either pre-kindergarten through sixth grade (PK-6) or first through eighth grade (1-8).
BestColleges.com used statistical data and a few consistently applied guiding principles to reach its conclusions. Its 2017 rankings reflect the most recent data compiled from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and the College Navigator, both of which are hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics, with the goal to objectively assess relative quality based on academic outcomes, affordability, and the breadth and depth of online learning opportunities. Institutions were ranked on academic quality, affordability and online programming.
