School of Education Increase Your Impact in the Classroom and Beyond

Education is a rewarding field that gives you the opportunity to make a real difference. While many roles in this field lead to the classroom, there are plenty of opportunities outside the traditional school setting as well. Working in administration, curriculum development or taking on leadership roles can allow you to shape policies and improve the system from within.

Our education programs can help you elevate your knowledge and prepare you for a broad range of roles both inside and outside the classroom. You’ll gain not only the academic knowledge you need to have an impact, you’ll gain leadership skills and insight from professors with years of real-world experience.

At NCU, you can also tailor your education to match your professional goals with a diverse selection of degrees and specializations in areas such as educational leadership, instructional design, curriculum and teaching, e-learning and more.

Being a working, mother of three, an online option was perfect for me. NCU didn’t require me to have to fly someplace to meet other students and professors and that was important to me, knowing that I didn’t have to prepare to leave my family.

Why Northcentral University?

One-to-one Learning Model

In each and every course, one student is paired with one faculty member, resulting in a class size of one. Featuring individualized teaching through feedback, a deeper understanding of the material is achieved and a real relationship built on mutual respect is formed between the professor and the student.

Financing

Paying for college is a major financial commitment, so we try to keep our tuition and fees as low as possible while still providing a quality academic experience. Financial aid is available to those who qualify and our financial aid team will work with you to create the plan that best works for you.

100% Doctoral Faculty

As part of our commitment to excellence in online higher education, Northcentral University maintains 100% doctoral faculty, most of whom have completed their program of study at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the discipline in which they teach or develop curricula.

Accreditations

Accreditation is a higher education seal of approval for schools, employers, and most importantly, for students. NCU is a WSCUC accredited institution. WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001, www.wscuc.org. WSCUC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Why Northcentral

At NCU, we are dedicated to providing our students with the personal attention they look for when pursuing advanced education. We take a great amount of pride in our programs and the thousands of graduates who have achieved their goals, be it completing their bachelor's degree, obtaining a Master's degree or successfully defending their dissertation to earn their doctoral degree.

GMAT/GRE Not Required

Another part of the NCU difference is that, upon application to graduate school, Northcentral University does not require graduate testing such as the GRE or GMAT. This means you have the ability to earn an advanced degree on your own terms.

Flexible Start Date

You shouldn't have to put your education on hold, at Northcentral University we offer weekly course starts to fit your schedule. With no need to wait for the start of a semester, you can start your educational journey as soon as you're ready.

Unique Flexibility

Northcentral University has no physical residency requirements, which makes us a great fit for working professionals, as well as for military personnel and international students who do not have to relocate or spend money to travel to a campus to complete the online degree.
