Bilingual Authorization

Credential Candidates have the option of pursuing a Preliminary Multiple Subject credential with bilingual authorization and may also complete requirements towards a masters degree. In addition, candidates may also pursue a Preliminary Education Specialist credential (mild/moderate) if interested in inclusive/special education. The 39-51-unit credential and master program gives candidates the opportunity to complete the Teacher Performance Assessment and a capstone research project. Candidates undertake field experiences in bilingual/dual language programs each semester that are aligned with the courses for the semester and culminate in a full-time student teaching experience.

The Masters Credential Cohort program uses a cohort model in alignment with its vision of providing candidates with opportunities to enhance the quality of their experiences by learning from each other.
