This two-semester, post-baccalaureate professional preparation program prepares candidates to teach in bilingual/crosscultural classrooms and in a variety of educational settings with students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Multiple subject (grades K–6) candidates come from a variety of academic majors, providing a range of experience and perspectives for all program participants. Prior to completion of the program leading to a teaching credential, candidates must demonstrate proficiency in the target language and knowledge of the target culture.

The program promotes strategies to foster language development, enhances crosscultural understanding, and addresses the educational needs of all students. University-based seminars provide candidates with exposure to program models, legal mandates, instructional practices, and other issues vital in establishing the foundation for later professional leadership.
