The School of Education provides teacher licensure programs, advanced endorsement programs for experienced teachers, and graduate training at both the Master's and PhD levels.
Teacher Licensure Programs
Teacher licensure programs ensure rigorous content preparation and extensive field-based practicum experiences. Programs leading to a Colorado teaching license are available for undergraduates, for postbaccalaureate students, and for candidates pursuing a Master's concurrently with a license. Master's level programs are also available for teachers who wish to obtain an advanced Colorado teaching endorsement in Bilingual Education, English as a Second Language, or as a Reading Specialist.
Graduate programs emphasize research that focuses on educational policy and practice. Areas of specialization leading to a Master's or PhD are Curriculum & Instruction (C&I); Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity (EECD); Educational Foundations, Policy, & Practice (EFPP); and Learning Sciences & Human Development (LSHD). Specialization in Research & Evaluation Methodology (REM) is available only at the PhD level.
