NCATE accredited

Northwestern's education department is one of only 4 in Iowa accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). That means our program meets high standards for both its coursework and field experiences—and our graduates are more likely to pass the teacher testing necessary to meet license requirements in various states.
