This Childhood Education Bilingual (Grades 1-6) program at The City University of New York provides candidates with a solid foundation in the theory and practice of bilingual education; courses include the following topics: bilingualism, research, methodology, biliteracy, content instruction in bilingual settings and multicultural education. Option A is designed for candidates who already hold certification in Childhood Education.
This program applies to students who do not hold a New York State Initial Certificate in Early Childhood Education or Childhood Education and wish to attain a Professional Certificate in Childhood Education with an Extension in Bilingual Education. Applicants must have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.00. Applicants must demonstrate proficiency in both English and in a language other than English (the language in which they seek the extension.)
Proficiency in the language other than English is determined by the Bilingual Education Assessment (BEA) which is offered by New York State. International applicants for whom English is a second language are required to pass the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of 550 on the paper-based test or 213 on the computer-based test or 79 on the internet-based test, before being considered for admission.
