For 20 years, Boulder Journey School and CU Denver’s School of Education and Human Development have partnered to offer a residency teacher preparation program that leads to birth-to-age 8 licensure and an MA. Now in a new online MA, you have the same opportunity to study high quality, multi-media examples of classroom learning and teaching from Boulder Journey School and the schools for young children in Reggio Emilia, Italy, engage in collaborative examination of documentation, develop your own interpretations, and experiment with new practices to innovate the field of Early Childhood Education. You also have an opportunity to begin with a course that articulates into either program of study. All three pathways are below.
