The College of Extended Education, in collaboration with the Department of Education and Leadership, offers Bilingual Authorization Courses for Teachers during our summer session. The courses are offered in Spanish only and aims to prepare teachers to meet the needs of both the region and the state’s English Language Learners population.

The courses will focus on the linguistic, social and cultural factors in schooling language diverse students and how factors are considered for effective learning practices. Other areas of concentration include primary language development, second language acquisition, evaluation and current research.

Bilingual Authorization Program

Who Should Enroll?

The courses are ideal for credentialed teachers with an interest in adding Bilingual Authorization approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) to their skill set.

Upon completion of all courses, students will be prepared to develop, implement, and adapt curriculum and instructional strategies in bilingual, dual language, and cross-cultural settings.

Enrollment Requirements

The courses satisfy the education requirement for obtaining a Bilingual Authorization from the California CTC. Prospective students should

  1. Hold a clear or preliminary teaching credential
  2. Pass the World Languages CSET Subtest III (Spanish).

Language Requirement must be completed for admission or prior to self-recommendation to the CTC. Registration priority is provided to credentialed students.


Non-credentialed students can also enroll and gain insight into working and teaching in bilingual/multicultural settings including immersion and bilingual education classes.
