Partners In Education


Partners in Education (PIE) is a unique opportunity for novice teachers to earn a Master’s degree which explicitly focuses on their classroom experience while working with professors at a prestigious, nationally ranked university. PIE teachers work as full time teachers for one year at a reduced salary while earning credits toward a Master’s degree from CU Boulder’s School of Education.

PIE teachers can pursue graduate degrees in either Curriculum and Instruction (CI) or Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity (EECD) Master’s programs. Both programs are open to elementary and secondary teachers. For specific program details, please visit the University of Colorado website at
