The NCU Difference
At Northcentral University, we understand that today's educators and administrators face new challenges every day and must commit to the lifelong pursuit of learning to keep up with the ever-changing educational landscape. NCU’s School of Education helps prepare students to meet these challenges by providing stimulating, relevant and career-focused bachelor's, master's, specialist, and doctoral degree programs in education. We are committed to providing a premier education for our students, and NCU holds the same regional accreditation as other prestigious American universities (WSCUC*). You will learn from our professors, all of whom hold doctoral degrees, and are experienced professionals in your field of study. Our one-to-one mentoring approach to learning allows you to experience individualized interaction. You'll be learning in a class size of one, so there's no need to worry about dropped classes or waiting lists. NCU’s flexible approach to earning a graduate degree online, includes weekly course starts to fit your schedule. Our online programs allow you to pursue your degree on your time. At NCU, there are no residency requirements, no need to travel to a physical campus and no entrance exams. You determine your schedule, just as you determine your educational outcome. That’s why NCU’s independent study approach is designed for you, the self-motivated student, who seeks a higher degree in their educational journey.
“For a person to share their knowledge, in order for others to avoid mistakes, is a priceless gift. NCU’s one-to-one learning model caught my eye. I could go at my own pace.” – Jennifer Evans, Master of Education (2015)
