Our program is unique to the Front Range, designed to ensure you get the most out of your learning experience and are well-prepared to be successful in your career as an educator.
Four Pillars, One Model
Our teacher licensure program is a Professional Development School model, which focuses on co-teaching as a way to learn by doing. Built on four pillars, this model will:
- Prepare you as an educator
- Develop you as a faculty member
- Help you to improve the practice of teaching through inquiry
- Encourage greater student engagement
Co-teaching puts you in the classroom, alongside a master teacher, early in our program. You’ll log 800 or more hours of classroom experience, working with students and receiving guidance from mentors. Locations for classroom instruction and internship placement vary within Fort Collins and Loveland in Northern Colorado.
Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to specialize in an endorsement area based on the ages you want to teach – early childhood education (birth through age 8) or secondary education (through grade 12).
