Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education Endorsement Program

The need for qualified educators trained to work with multilingual learners continues to increase in Colorado. CU Denver's graduate Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education endorsement program is designed for currently licensed teachers seeking career advancement and the knowledge and tools needed to support diverse languages, cultures, and abilities in the classroom.
The endorsement program consists of eight courses (24 semester credits) and a portfolio. It may generally be completed within two years, and is designed to fit around your professional teaching hours. Clinical experience can be completed in your own school and classroom.
Most of our students choose to complete additional credit hours to earn a master's in Curriculum and Instruction. Please investigate our master's in Elementary Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (if you hold an elementary license) or Secondary Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (if you hold a secondary license) to learn more.

  • Take the next step:
    Detailed application requirements and materials are available. Note that most teachers choose to keep their options open and apply to the full master's program, since the application requirements are the same.
