About

The current Master of Science in Instruction: Elementary Bilingual/Bicultural Education Program is designed to offer professional development to classroom teachers who are interested in updating and refining their teaching competencies in the area of Bilingual/Bicultural at the elementary level.*

*Please note that the current Master of Science in Instruction: Elementary Bilingual/Bicultural Education is under revision. The new program, Master of Science in Teaching and Inquiry: Elementary and Bilingual/Bicultural Education will have a pre-set course sequence that will be 5 terms in length requiring completion of 31 credit hours. Each term students take one required "core" course and one elective course from an extensive list of possible classes that lead to Bilingual or ESL endorsement. It is anticipated that this program will be initiated in Fall 2013.

Is this for me?

Throughout the program there is an emphasis on enhancing teachers' inquiry skills and instructional skills to better serve ELLs and other second language learners.
