Professional Certificate in Bilingual/Multicultural Education - Extension Program
The division offers a 15 graduate credit course sequence leading to a bilingual extension certificate. Coursework will provide students with the theory, multicultural perspectives, and practical background to work in bilingual and/or dual-language classroom settings. The five course sequence will allow the initially certified teacher to obtain the knowledge and skills of: (1) the theories of bilingual education and bilingualism, (2) the multicultural viewpoints of education, (3) the social, psychological, and psycho-linguistic aspects of bilingualism, (4) the methods of teaching English language arts and native language arts to bilingual English language learners, and (5) methods of teaching content area instruction to bilingual English language learners, using both the native language and English.
This course sequence does not require a practicum although fieldwork is a requirement of most coursework.
