The Learning Experience
This online/classroom hybrid program is designed to be completed while teaching full time. You will complete most coursework online during the year, and meet in person to attend a three-week summer course in northern Colorado. Students come back to class one more time for a weekend-long capstone course before graduating.
You will also complete a 300-hour internship and the opportunity to build a portfolio to illustrate the skills you gained to future employers. This internship placement can occur at your school district of employment.
Students seeking a master's degree in addition to the principal licensure complete the degree requirements in four semesters. Students seeking the license only can complete degree requirements in three semesters.
