Bilingual/Bicultural Education (BBED) - Minor

21 S.H.

2.0 GPA required.

Letter grade required in all minor courses unless otherwise noted.

The Bilingual/Bicultural Education Minor program prepares future K-12 teachers to teach academic content (math, science, language arts, etc.) in two languages, such as English and Spanish. WSU students with certain majors can qualify for a Bilingual/Bicultural Education endorsement on their teaching licenses. The program offers 22 hours of clinical teaching in a bilingual classroom with guidance from a bilingual teacher and the program advisor. Bilingual/Bicultural Education teachers must demonstrate advanced spoken and written proficiency in English and the language of their students (e.g., Spanish). Our program prepares students to read, write, and speak at an advanced academic level so they can teach their students effectively in both languages.
