Your competence is the ultimate focus of every degree program at Western Governors University. The university emphasizes mastery of essential skills and knowledge in your field, basing progress toward your online degree on passing rigorous assessments (such as tests, projects, assignments, etc.) instead of accumulating credit hours. We call it competency-based learning.
With bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in education, business, information technology, and health professions, WGU’s rigorous yet flexible approach to education gives the university a unique advantage over other online programs.
