The events will feature information about Watson’s undergraduate degree and licensure programs, as well as a student panel discussion/Q&A.


Undergraduate degree and licensure programs at UNCW’s Watson College of Education provide a pathway to earn the credentials needed to teach students in grades pre-K through high school.

Degree and licensure programs include:

  • Education of Young Children (B-K)
  • Elementary Education (K-6)
  • Middle Grades (6-9)
  • Secondary Education (9-12)
  • Special Education (General or Adapted Curriculum, K-12)
  • French, Spanish or Music (K-12)
  • Physical Education and Health (K-12)

Each program offers field experiences in local classrooms, the Education Lab, the community and abroad. These experiences give future teachers the opportunity to apply theory to practice in a wide range of real-world settings, and build skills and confidence needed to succeed in the classroom.
