Bilingual/Bicultural Education

Master’s Program

Department of Curriculum and Instruction

The Bilingual/Bicultural Education (BBE) program provides expertise for students to become leaders in a field of growing importance. BBE students develop a critical perspective that allows them to advocate for bilingual educators, administrators, children, and families both in and outside the K-12 education system. Working alongside faculty, BBE graduate students develop a knowledge base in research and practice in the areas of: language policy and bilinguals’ educational program development; second language acquisition; biliteracy; effective bilingual and ESL instructional practices; bilingual and ESL teacher preparation; and theories of immigration. In addition, our thriving undergraduate Bilingual Teacher Certification program offers students extensive opportunities to experience research and theory in practice in the classroom.
