Bilingual Add-On Certification

The Bilingual Program is available for students who plan to teach in a classroom where two languages (English and another language) are used for instruction. Bilingual Program students gain real world experience in the classroom by student teaching at area schools. Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements also meet the Wisconsin teacher certification requirements for those grades.

A Bilingual Certification will result in an additional certification at the same level as your initial license. Students must already have or be in process of completing certification requirements for one of the following programs:

• Early Childhood
• Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence
• Early Adolescence through Adolescence: English, Mathematics, Social Studies, or Science
• Early Childhood through Adolescence: English as a Second Language or World Languages

Languages Offered:

• Spanish
• Hmong
• Lao
