Program of Study


The Bilingual Authorization Program offered in conjunction with the Multiple-Subject, Middle Level, Single-Subject, Special Education, and Integrated Credential Program options. The authorization is for those individuals wishing to provide primary language instruction (Spanish) to English language learners. This program is designed to provide English candidates with primary and second language theory, curricula, instructional strategies, and methodology and is specially designed to instruct K-12 grade students in both their native language and in English language development across the content core curricula. The School of Education offers coursework and clinical practice, which will qualify candidates with the requisite skills, knowledge, and disposition to design, implement, and teach in biliteracy settings and primary language programs for English learners. 

There are three (3) requirements of the Bilingual Authorization Program – Spanish:

  1. Candidates must demonstrate proficiency in Spanish by passing the CSET Language Other Than English (LOTE) III: Spanish Language examination.

  3. The following additional course must be successfully completed: EDUC 653 , Biliteracy I (3 units) and EDUC 654 , Biliteracy II (3 units).
