Become the teacher you want to be...
The University of Northern Colorado Center for Urban Education has teacher preparation degree programs that lead to Colorado licensure in:
- Elementary Education
- Early Childhood Education, or
- Special Education.
Gain the experience of working in a classroom while you study for your college degree.
But it is more than that – it is a place where traditional scholarship meets a rich real-world experience in a metropolitan area school classroom – a place where students find a home for learning and growing as teaching professionals.
The bachelor’s degree program prepares students to be elementary, special education or early childhood teachers in contemporary schools and provides the opportunity to immediately apply what they learn in their college courses. Throughout the four-year program, students spend weekday mornings in K-12 classrooms as part of apprenticeships that are supervised by veteran teachers.
