The Elementary Education program leads to a Colorado provisional license in Kindergarten through 6th grade.
The Elementary Education licensure program is designed around a cohort structure in which all students complete the program requirements in four semesters. The first three semesters consist of education courses and school-based practicum experiences. Practicum placements are selected by the School of Education and require that students travel to school sites in the Boulder/Denver region. Practicum courses are scheduled with consideration for travel time. Students depart from and return to campus within the allotted class time.
To be eligible for licensure, candidates must successfully complete all academic and field experience requirements, pass a state-approved licensure exam, and complete one semester of student teaching.
