Master of Education in Bilingual Education, and Master of Education in TESOL

The Master of Education, Bilingual Education prepares you to teach all subjects in both Spanish and English, while simultaneously helping children develop as bilingual speakers. The degree examines multiple points of view, theories and practical applications to help educators create learning environments designed to educate a widely diverse student population. The program features student-centered knowledge construction through applied learning projects and includes a capstone course. Applicants must be fluent speakers of both languages

The Master of Education, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) prepares educators to teach students who are non-native English speakers in schools where English is the language of instruction. Graduates will be better prepared to support all learners in their classrooms, enabling their students to succeed in all academic content areas. Students in this program will learn to use TESOL frameworks to teach support their students’ simultaneous English language and content knowledge acquisition.
