The Bilingual/Bicultural Education program provides expertise for students to become leaders in a field of growing importance. Our 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, graduate students in the BBE program develop a knowledge base in research and practice in the areas of: language policy and program development; second language acquisition; biliteracy; effective bilingual and ESL instructional practices; bilingual and ESL teacher preparation; evaluation and assessment in language education; 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.
