Bilingual Authorization (9 semester hours)

Credential candidates with the requisite language proficiency can earn a bilingual authorization to teach in either Spanish or Mandarin in an elementary classroom. The authorization requires students to complete part of their coursework and student teaching in a bilingual classroom. The bilingual authorization may contribute to meeting other requirements as well, such as those for particular Concentrations. See the Director of Bilingual Programs if interested in earning the bilingual authorization.
