This Master of Bilingual Education offers a Preliminary Multiple or Single Subject Teaching Credential and Internship Option with Bilingual Authorization. It’s designed for candidates dedicated to teaching all K-12 learners by ensuring social-emotional thriving, meaningful academic achievement, and equitable and inclusive learning communities. Courses meet the new California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) Program Standards, including the new 45 Teaching Performance Expectations (TPE), composing the TPE’s six domains and Teaching Performance Assessments (TPA) associated with the revised 3.0 CalTPA model. This degree meets all CTC requirements for a Preliminary Multiple or Single Subject teaching credential and those requirements for a master’s degree. The added Bilingual Authorization (SPANISH/ENGLISH) meets all six Bilingual Program Standards as approved by CTC. Students in this Master’s degree complete a three-course emphasis in one of the following areas: Critical Thinking, English Learner Equity and Academic Achievement, Inspired Teaching Practices, or Social Emotional Learning.
*Please Note: Students need to satisfy/pass the Basic Skills Requirement (e.g., CBEST) and Subject Matter Competency Requirement (e.g., CSET) early (before Credential Area Methods coursework) into their programs to avoid interruptions to program progress or financial aid arrangements.

Successful completion and attainment of National University degrees do not lead to automatic or immediate licensure, employment, or certification in any state/country. The University cannot guarantee that any professional organization or business will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any certification, licensure, or related exam for professional certification.
Program availability varies by state. Many disciplines, professions, and jobs require disclosure of an individual’s criminal history, and a variety of states require background checks to apply to or be eligible for certain certificates, registrations, and licenses. The existence of criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and licensing authority.
NU graduates will be subject to additional requirements on a program, certification/licensure, employment, and state-by-state basis that can include one or more of the following items: internships, practicum experience, additional coursework, exams, tests, drug testing, earning an additional degree, or other training/education requirements.
All prospective students are advised to review employment, certification, and licensure requirements in their state, and to contact the certification/licensing body of the state or country where they intend to obtain certification/licensure to verify that these courses/programs qualify in that state/country before enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state’s/country’s policies and procedures relating to certification/licensure, as those policies are subject to change.
National University degrees do not guarantee employment or salary of any kind. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to review desired job positions to review degrees, education, and training required to apply for desired positions. Prospective students should monitor these positions as requirements, salary, and other relevant factors can change over time.
