This post-baccalaureate teacher certification program is designed for individuals who want to earn initial teacher certification to teach in bilingual settings in EC-6 classrooms. In bilingual education, the child’s native language and English are both used for instruction in all or part of the school curriculum.
This is a 24-hour program equivalent to eight courses. Of those 24 hours, 18 hours (6 courses) are online coursework, and the remaining 6 hours (2 courses) are either student teaching or practicum. Students in this program may count a number of courses toward a MEd in Teaching if they apply to and are accepted into that degree program.
