Prospective Licensure Student Information

The School of Education is dedicated to preparing teachers to successfully educate all students and to advance educational equity and social justice. Teacher candidates explore instructional methods specific to their content areas, examine the social foundations of education in order to better understand and serve all student populations, and learn specific strategies to meet all students’ needs in today’s classrooms.

Teacher licensure programs leading to a Colorado teaching license are available for current or transferring CU Boulder undergraduates, for Post-Baccalaureate candidates, and for candidates pursuing a Master’s degree concurrently with licensure. 

Beginning in 2017-18, incoming freshmen will have the option of enrolling in the new Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with the endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education.

The School of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), which entails rigorous and comprehensive evaluations of our teacher preparation programs and ensures that our students are thoroughly prepared to enter teaching upon graduation.
