If you feel passionate about improving educational outcomes for your students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, University of Colorado Denver and select area districts have partnered to bring you an endorsement with an optional MA in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (CLDE). This transformational, practice-oriented program for elementary and secondary teachers will develop your knowledge, leadership skills and classroom practices to support multilingual learners and their families. Your cohort will earn the 24-credit CLDE endorsement in five semesters (Fall 2023 through Spring 2025). Next, you may pursue the optional master’s in CLDE for an additional six credit hours.
This cohort of educators will address relevant, emerging topics in CLDE such as:
To complete the program, teachers will participate in three types of credit-bearing experiences, each designed specifically for teachers in our partner districts: graduate courses, professional development experiences for graduate credit and practicum hours.
Most assignments will apply directly to your school and district context.
Additional courses needed for the MA:
Cohort members take one class per semester during the school year, with additional job-embedded practicum work. Your endorsement courses will be held on weekday evenings, with synchronous meetings approximately once per month, either fully online or at a district training center.
Tuition costs for this program are significantly lower than main campus rates because they are offered as off-campus extended studies courses through CU Denver. The overall cost will depend on the number of courses taken on campus at CU Denver. Course costs do not include student fees, books, and other fees. A one-time matriculation fee of approximately $100 will apply if you do not already hold a CU degree.
