Description of Work Unit

The Educator Licensing Program at Colorado State University offers these teaching endorsement areas for students:

•PreK – Grade 3: Early Childhood Education
•Kindergarten – Grade 12: Art, Foreign Languages, Instructional Technology; Music
•Secondary – Grades 7-12: Agricultural Education, Business Education, English, Family and Consumer Studies, Marketing Education, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Speech, Technology Education
