The Elementary Education Program graduates earn a B.A. in Liberal Arts. The liberal arts major is required because of its interdisciplinary character and comprehensive coverage of content knowledge and skills required for elementary teacher candidates. The elementary licensure program is 128 credit hours and, in addition, offers elective credit hours in a wide variety of settings, including rural, urban, international and Christian school settings. Upon program completion the candidate has met all requirements for institutional recommendation for Colorado licensure. With careful planning and commitment this can be accomplished in four years.
The Elementary Education Licensure Program requires completion of the following 128 credits:
General Education (30 credit hours)
Liberal Arts Major Core (51 credit hours)
Elementary Education Professional Core (47 credit hours)
