Master of Arts for Practicing Teachers
The curriculum and pedagogy (C&P) studies lead to an advanced master’s degree in curriculum and instruction. All programs require 36 semester hours, including the C&P core or its equivalent. The core courses provide a sound basis in curriculum theory, teacher inquiry, appreciation of diversity and philosophical foundations. The various specializations allow teachers to focus in an area of interest.
Elementary teachers take the math and science concentration. Secondary teachers may choose mathematics, science or social studies.
Each of these programs is designed to prepare teachers to qualify for master certification from the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, as well as prepare for licensure renewal with the Colorado Department of Education.
