Bilingual Education

The rapid expansion of Dual Language programs in Texas offers a unique opportunity to work with emergent bi/multilingual students and their families in this high-needs area. This is a job that is constantly in demand and also offers pay supplements and tuition supports from districts.

The Bachelor of Science in Education with Bilingual Education certification builds theoretical and historical perspectives on the unique contexts of Bilingual, dual- and multi-language learners. Through inquiry-based approaches embedded in area schools and communities, future teachers develop informed, culturally-responsive instructional practices that positively impact learners and families.

  • Latina/o/x Children’s and Young Adult Literature
  • Biliteracy Practices for the Dual Language/Bilingual Classroom
  • Dual Language Programs, Policy and Practice
  • Teaching and Learning Processes for the Dual Language/Bilingual Classroom
