Prospective Students



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 pursuing a non-education degree at CU Boulder, for post-baccalaureate students, and for candidates pursuing a Master's concurrently with a license. 

Undergraduate Degrees and Minors

Our undergraduate degrees and minors offer important pathways toward rewarding and transformative careers in education and community leadership.  Beginning in 2017-18, incoming freshmen will have two new degree options — a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with the advanced endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education and the Bachelor of Arts in Leadership and Community Engagement. In addition, we offer the Education Minor and Leadership Studies Minor for CU Boulder students from all majors. 

Graduate Programs

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.

The University of Colorado Boulder School of Education was selected as a partner in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate.
