NOTE: The Bilingual Endorsement is only for those who are already P-12 teachers or in a P-12 teacher education program and who are working toward or already bilingual.
This program leads to an additional endorsement in Bilingual Education; when accompanied by a professional teacher education program and a first endorsement in another content area. Also required is a cultural studies course taught in the language of that culture or demonstration of equivalent experience. Expected proficiency is equivalent to a major in the language other than English, and oral proficiency at the ACTFL mid-advanced level. Each required course must be completed with a grade of B- (2.7) or better. A passing score on the Bilingual WEST-E and an assessment in the non-English language of instruction is required by the state.
