Early Childhood Bilingual/ESL Certificate

Complete Erikson’s online Early Childhood Bilingual/English as a Second Language graduate certificate program and prepare for a high-growth, high-demand area of teaching.

Learn how to effectively support young children’s language development, including those whose first language is not English. Ours is one of the few programs in the nation focused solely on children from birth to second grade.

Our schools serve an increasingly diverse student body, and more states are now requiring bilingual and/or ESL approval to teach in multilingual classrooms. Meet this challenge by enrolling in our online certificate program.

This program is designated as a gainful employment program for the purposes of federal student financial aid eligibility.

Priority application deadline: Oct. 15 for spring term start, May 15 for summer term start
