On Monday, representatives from Wheeling University and Fairmont State University signed an articulation agreement to establish a partnership amongst the institutions, which aims to produce more quality health care professionals to serve patients in the State of West Virginia and across the country.
The Fairmont State University Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program has been granted a program waiver from the West Virginia Department of Education, allowing for students pursuing a MAT to significantly shorten their path to graduation while still maintaining the program quality necessary to produce effective teachers. Qualifying students must have a bachelor’s degree in the same concentration or content area in which they aim to teach upon completion of their degree.
The Fairmont State University School of Education, Health & Human Performance has expanded its Educational Leadership program to offer students four pathways including a Master of Education in Educational Leadership, Educational Leadership Certificate, Principal Certificate and Superintendent Certificate.
Fairmont State University’s Teacher Education program has earned national accreditation by demonstrating excellence in the areas of content and pedagogy, clinical experiences, selectivity, program impact, and capacity for continuous improvement. It is one of 42 providers from 23 states and the District of Columbia to receive accreditation for their education programs by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
