As more children who speak languages other than English enroll in schools, the demand for certified bilingual (BLE) teachers is growing. SUNY Fredonia’s degree program offers you the opportunity to engage in the latest research-based teaching theories and methods, grounded in cultural and linguistic contexts, so you can become a successful, strong bilingual teacher informed in best practices for working with emergent bilingual students. If you are committed to life-enhancing multilingual and multicultural student learning, prepared to teach and learn with students from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, and willing to meet rigorous professional standards, this program is right for you. This eighteen (18) credit hour program leads to a recommendation for a Bilingual Extension to any NYS certification (except ESOL).
