The School of Education provides a  Reading Education Minor, an Education Minor, and a Reading Literacy Emphasis.    

The Reading Education Minor, which does not lead to Colorado teacher licensure, is available to screened elementary and special education students who have made a career change decision and do not plan to pursue licensure.  The minor includes a strong reading literacy core of classes. 

The Education Minor, which does not lead to Colorado teacher licensure, is available to a wide range of majors on campus, including, but not limited to, Youth Ministry, business, psychology, and secondary education students who have made a career change decision.  This option is beneficial for CCU students who plan to work in settings where they will interact, counsel, lead, coach, or instruct middle or high school-aged young people, either in a vocation or avocation. 

The Reading Literacy Emphasis is awarded to all elementary program and special education generalist program completers, and represents a strong and important focus for teachers in these fields.

Students seeking the Reading Education Minor, Education Minor or Reading Literacy Emphasis must have a cumulative GPA of 2.75. Appropriate progress requires students to earn a C or better in all professional education courses. Students may retake a course to achieve a C or better, but may only retake a given course one time.

Students may earn a minor or emphasis in the field by completing the following credit hours, including course prerequisites and corequisites, provided none of the courses are required in the student’s major.
