Master of Arts in Teaching Initial Licensure Program
Colorado College DOES offer the opportunity to be licensed at the undergraduate level! Licensure is offered in elementary education (K-6), K-12 art, music and world languages and secondary (6-12) English, math, science and social studies. Each program has a content checklist detailing the required coursework necessary to be approved to teach in that discipline, all of which can be found on this page.
If you plan to teach elementary school, you may major in any liberal arts discipline. If you plan to pursue licensure at the K-12 or secondary level, you must major in the content area you plan to teach. You will also need to complete education coursework listed below.
To allow students extra time to meet the demands of their major and the teacher licensure program, there is the "9th" semester option, in which students complete their 4 blocks of student teaching after they graduate with their bachelor's degree. This "9th" semester is at a significantly reduced tuition rate. Additionally, students may wish to pursue licensure through the Master of Arts in Teaching program (see graduate programs).
