Because the world desperately needs great teachers
Education is essential, not just to the success of the individual, but to the success of our community, our state and our country. And the key to education is, without question, in the hands of our teachers. Teaching is more than a job — it’s a calling. And more than ever, we need smart, compassionate and motivated teachers. At the Julia Tutwiler College of Education, that’s our mission, and our graduates have been doing with distinction the work that matters for generations.
The B.S. Elementary Education (Major K-6) (Includes certification in Early Childhood P-3) degree at The University of West Alabama is accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Early Childhood Higher Education Programs of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The current accreditation term runs from March 2022 through August 2024.”
