The Program in Bilingual/Bicultural Education at TC focuses on the incorporation of multiple languages into the everyday classroom experience. Most of our students who want to teach will do so at the elementary level (grades 1-6). We offer Teacher Certification in Childhood Education (grades 1-6) as well as the Bilingual Extension certification.
