The School of Education offers professional programs designed to train and equip you as part of the next generation of teachers for both public schools and private Christian schools. Our Christ centered educational model is unique among education schools in Colorado, creating graduates who are not only outstanding educators, but also respected members of their community. If you're interested in elementary education, this major in liberal arts will help you gain a strong foundation of knowledge in laboratory sciences, geography, history, political science, literature, writing and mathematics, in addition to a nine-credit reading specialist core. If you're more interested in secondary education, you'll major in English, Science, History, or Music K-12. The Special Education program is designed for those students who want a career focused in special education and special needs teaching.
CCU's School of Education has earned a reputation in the local community for producing strong educator-leaders who are dedicated to addressing diverse learner needs. This training occurs through a combination of classroom and experiential learning - all CCU education students are required to complete 800 hours of field experience, which you'll begin your freshman year. CCU has professional development partnerships with local middle schools and high schools where you'll work with exemplary teachers to gain expert experience.
Throughout the program, you'll be taught and mentored by exceptional professors who have all been licensed as teachers or administrators in Colorado. They know what it's like to be in the classrooms and they are committed to helping you succeed.
