Bachelor of Arts in Education Degree

CMC’s innovating program provides latest training — in local classrooms

The best way to learn how to teach is to get into the classroom! Colorado Mountain College's Bachelor of Arts in Education places CMC students in elementary classrooms from the start. So as they take college coursework, they also learn alongside veteran teachers.

Why is this important? Many college students don’t get into the classroom until later in their program, giving them few chances to develop classroom skills. By getting experience during all four years CMC students develop skills that help them be successful in their first year of teaching. And by getting into the classroom right away, students also decide early on whether teaching is the career for them.
