Bilingual Authorization - Spanish


Bilingual Authorization is a program within the Master's of Arts (MA) in Education-General Option, so that candidates completing the Bilingual Authorization program can apply their courses towards a Master's of Arts in Education-General Option - a 30-unit degree program.  In order to obtain their Bilingual Authorization, candidates must be fluent in Spanish and be able to pass the CSET Languages Other Than English (LOTE) III Exam in Spanish Language and Communication prior to issuance of the authorization.  This CSET replaces the bilingual assessment through Extended Learning.

For candidates already holding a valid basic credential with EL authorization (Multiple, Single or Education Specialist) who have not completed the bilingual clinical practice (EDMS 573):
