The University of Northern Colorado Center for Urban Education is offering a program to Paraeducators and Educational Assistants interested in earning a Bachelor's degree with licensure in one of three areas:

  • Elementary Education (K - Grade 6)
  • Early Childhood Education (Birth - Grade 3)
  • Special Education (K - Age 21)

How is this program different from other teacher prep programs?

  • Employees spend their day in a classroom teacher apprenticeship position with college credit - all four years.  This includes time in the classroom as part of the regular duty day.
  • Employees are mentored by a master teacher who offers guidance and support for the classroom apprenticeship experience during all four years of the program.
