MEd, Bilingual Education

In this program, educators will examine multiple points of view, multiple theories, and practical applications that are grounded in a plurality of concerns, in order to create excellent classroom and other learning environments to educate a widely diverse student population. While teachers will be exposed to current theory, research, and practice, they will also spend a large proportion of their time constructing knowledge for themselves, with faculty guidance, through applied learning projects. In addition, they will participate in a capstone course, which is the culminating activity required to be taken after all coursework has been completed.
