UW-Superior is the only institution of higher learning in the Twin Ports to receive this accolade
The University of Wisconsin-Superior has been recognized for having one of the top 15 bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education programs in the nation by BestDegreePrograms.org.
BestDegreePrograms.org noted that UW-Superior “offers accredited online degrees in elementary education with several available teaching minors. The degree may be completed primarily online, although some courses require observation or work at nearby schools. Field experience is also a requirement of the program and must be completed in the student’s geographic location. According to the program website, accreditation has been awarded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. University of Wisconsin is ranked by major publications like U.S. News and World Report. In fact, the most recent edition of Best Colleges ranks the school #36 for best regional colleges in the Midwest and #2 for top public schools.”
With more than 100 years of experience in training teachers, UW-Superior is the only institution of higher learning in the Twin Ports and the only school in the UW System to receive this accolade. The Teacher Education Program offers an elementary education major that prepares students to obtain certification to teach pre-kindergarten through sixth grade or first through eighth grade.
