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 the 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
instruction and curriculum; educational psychology; educational foundations,
policy, and practice; and educational equity and cultural diversity. Specialization
in research and evaluation methodology is available only at the PhD level.
