If you are interested in a rewarding career as an elementary teacher, the BA in Elementary Education provides an engaging and exciting path. We prepare teachers who are dedicated to social justice and committed to ensuring every student learns and excels.
Through engaging coursework and practical experience in the classroom, this degree offers a track towards a bachelor’s degree and teacher licensure focused on kindergarten through 6th grades. Plus, you will earn the desirable, advanced endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Education, which provides preparation and tools for working with diverse populations and emerging bilingual learners, who make up nearly 25% of Colorado's school age population.
Note: if you are interested in a degree in another area combined with licensure, explore our teacher licensure program.
Our programs are transitioning starting Fall 2018. While the Elementary Education Major is aimed at CU Boulder first-year students, learn about intra-university transfer possibilities.
