About

This Bilingual Education for Teachers degree from New York University is ideal for educational personnel seeking additional credentials in order to work in bilingual and bicultural settings.

Overview

In the Bilingual Education for Teachers degree from New York University, students will acquire second-language teaching and learning skills that will put you in demand as a teacher, researcher, curriculum developer, or administrator in schools, community organizations, international agencies, publishing companies, and multinational corporations.

By combining core foundation classes and content electives with fieldwork and student teaching, you’ll explore:

  • The theory and practice of bilingual multicultural education and teaching second languages
