The postbaccalaureate Certificate Program in Bilingualism and Global Education is designed to provide students who already have obtained their Multiple Subjects, Single Subjects, or Education Specialists Teaching Credentials an opportunity to add Bilingual Authorization approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). In addition, it allows non-credentialed students the opportunity to gain insight for working or teaching in bilingual/multicultural settings. The program prepares candidates to develop, implement, and adapt curriculum and instructional strategies for bilingual, dual language, and cross-cultural settings. The Bilingualism and Global Education Certificate courses are also part of the Bilingual/Multicultural MA Option.
