Our strong relationship with the surrounding community also helps create an enriching learning environment.

The Thayer School of Education offers the following undergraduate majors:

Wingate’s 4 + 1 Master of Arts in Education in Elementary Education program allows you the opportunity to earn your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years.  After you earn your bachelor’s, exposure to one year of field experience, intensive coursework and vocation mastery at the highest level gets you all set for the K-6 classroom.

For those who have already earned their bachelor’s degree, we offer graduate programs for those seeking a doctoral degree in superintendency, one for community college executive leadership and master’s programs in teaching and educational leadership. If you’ve earned your bachelor’s degree, our AIG Licensure program may be for you. You can qualify to add a license to teach academically and intellectually gifted students after you earn your bachelor’s degree.
