Our Bilingual Education programs prepare students to become skilled, knowledgeable, caring teachers who will provide meaningful schooling experiences to English language learners in dual-language settings. Faculty and students in Bilingual Education programs believe additive bilingualism is a desired goal for learners, diversity is a strength upon which to build learning, and families and communities are a source of strength and knowledge in the development of children as learners.
Bilingual Education programs are offered in Spanish/English, French/English and Chinese/English at both the Childhood and Early Childhood levels. Bilingual Extension programs are also available for teachers and pupil personnel who hold NYS certification.
Programs in Bilingual Education include:
