Our education program can be completed through a combination of physical classes on-site at Montrose Campus, online classes, and field experience done through the local school district.

BA, Liberal Arts, with Elementary Education licensure

Graduates of this program are eligible to become licensed as an Elementary Education (grades K-6) educators in the State of Colorado. Colorado Mesa University is actively seeking applicants for the next cycle of Elementary Education licensure.

The program is presently available through the Montrose Campus using online courses and classroom/field experience. The first half of this program consists of 60 credit hours of coursework in a variety of disciplines. In the second half of the program, students begin the Elementary Education licensure sequence. The typical weekly schedule includes two to three days of classes beginning in the late afternoon and evening. As real-world experience with schools and students are an integral part of this program, participants will be required to spend increasing time in schools each semester, in addition to the college classes. The final two semesters (pre-internship and internship) of the program require a full time schedule in these schools.
