Not Accepting Applications

To best meet the needs of our students, we have decided to suspend enrollment in the Post-Master’s Advanced Certificate in Bilingual Education. We encourage you to explore our Master of Arts in Bilingual Education for Teachers or Doctor of Philosophy in Bilingual Education.

This post-master’s advanced certificate prepares multilingual and bilingual education teachers, supervisors, teacher trainers, administrators, and materials developers who seek additional credentials and want to build on their knowledge of bilingual education. You'll develop a robust foundation in bilingual education and have the option to pursue a New York State bilingual extension certificate.
