The non-degree Education: ESL and Bilingual/Bicultural program from Rutgers University consists of seven courses (21 credits) and does not, by itself, lead to an academic degree. Candidates will be recommended for the ESL and bilingual/bicultural endorsements upon completion of the 21-credit program and then will have the option of continuing in the Ed.M. program.
The Rutgers University Graduate School of Education is dedicated to the study and improvement of education. The creation of knowledge about teaching and learning is central to our mission. We seek to ensure that all children and adults have access to high quality educational programs. As such, our work addresses the cognitive, social, organizational, cultural, linguistic, developmental, and policy dimensions of education. Our instructional programs are designed to produce graduates who become effective educational practitioners, transformative educational leaders, and accomplished educational researchers. Our partnerships and service contributions focus on New Jersey but extend to both national and global communities.
