Professional Development for Educators and Principals

Western provides opportunities for educators to take Education courses to enhance content knowledge, share pedagogy, and network with educators from throughout Colorado and beyond.

The 500-level Education course offerings are provided through the Office of Extended Studies. Credits earned for 500-level courses may not be applied to Western's MA in Education degree.  The rigor, audience, and purpose of these courses are distinct from courses offered through the Graduate degree program and have a different pricing structure. 

Students may take up to three 600-level courses (9 credits) before formally applying to the Master's degree program.  600-level courses may be applied to Western's MA in Education degree.
