The Education and Human Development major focuses on engaging Colorado’s rapidly diversifying student and family population. It combines cutting-edge research with real classroom experiences. You’ll learn from innovative faculty members who are locally, nationally and internationally recognized for their research in elementary education. They will provide you with a robust knowledge base and relevant learning experiences in children’s thinking, culturally responsive education, and supporting English language learners, as well as technology as it relates to teaching children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. You’ll engage in powerful classroom experiences and benefit from our rich 20-year history of partnerships with local school districts.
We will prepare you to become a highly effective, innovative and compassionate elementary teacher skilled in improving student performance and reaching the needs of today’s diverse learners in a variety of school settings. You will have the skills to be a teacher leader. CU Denver graduates often go on to acquire positions in educational leadership as their careers progress.
