Educator Preparation Program

Metropolitan State University of Denver

Master's of Arts in Teaching

This pathway is ideal for students who have completed a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and wish to earn a master's degree in teaching and teacher licensure through part- or full-time studies.  Upon successfully completing your graduate degree and licensure program, you will earn a master of arts degree and recommendation to the Colorado Department of Education for licensure.

In addition to an initial endorsement, you can choose to add endorsements in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (K-12); Spanish/English Bilingual Education Specialist (BES); and Special Education Generalist (K-12) to your initial endorsement.

Our graduate degree with licensure programs focus on career readiness and real-world experiences. Throughout your time with us, you will learn in small classes taught by experienced faculty and spend myriad hours observing and teaching in classrooms so that the theories you learn during  course work can be directly applied to a classroom of students. During the last year of your program, you’ll participate in a capstone student teaching experience, working alongside an experienced and dedicated mentor teacher, and receive continual and detailed feedback designed to prepare you for your teaching career.
