At the School of Education & Human Development, initial licensure candidates, as well as teachers looking to advance their careers, are taught by teams of CU Denver faculty scholars and highly accomplished practitioners. Our instructors include retired principals, superintendents, teachers and counselors, as well as teachers and administrators who are still active in the field. We place site professors, along with school site coordinators, in our partner schools to support the supervision of our candidates. Counseling students are supervised by our faculty and the student counseling staff at our campus facility. Our commitment is to bring together state-of-the-art theory, research and innovative practice in teams with the strongest set of skills and field-based perspectives.
In our doctoral programs, students work in a close mentor relationship with our faculty to develop research skills and grantsmanship. Our school faculty currently holds over $40 million in external funding and can offer doctoral students and master’s students many exciting opportunities.
Our faculty members create dynamic classroom atmospheres and stimulating classroom and online discussions that will keep you engaged, enlightened and informed. We strive to offer our doctoral students teaching experiences as well.
