Earn the Bilingual or ESL endorsement with your Online Master of Science in Early Childhood Education degree and work in a high-growth, high-demand area of early childhood education. Completing this concentration in our online, non-licensure master’s program may enable you to add the Bilingual and/or an ESL endorsement through your state board of education.
- If you have second language proficiency, the bilingual endorsement prepares you to instruct young children in that language as well as English
- An English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement prepares you to instruct new language learners in English
- If you earn the Bilingual endorsement, you will automatically earn the ESL endorsement as well, without needing to complete additional courses
