Fort Lewis College offers a Teacher Education Licensure Program designed to enable students to qualify for a Colorado Teaching License. The Teacher Education Department endeavors to attract individuals with a high potential for successfully completing teacher preparation courses and fieldwork.

The program makes it possible for undergraduate  students to complete both a bachelor’s degree and qualify for a teaching license within four academic years. Students holding a Bachelor’s Degree may choose to enter any one of the Teacher Education Post-Baccalaureate (Post-Bac) licensure programs.
