Undergraduate Information

The Major

The Dual Language and English Learner Education (DLE) Department offers programs leading toward the bilingual credential for single and multiple subjects (secondary and elementary).

The Dual Language and English Learner Education Department and the College of Education is committed to the preparation of teachers for bilingual authorization as the most desirable credential in California. Furthermore, the university is committed to developing leaders in cultural, economic, educational, scientific, social, and technical fields, as well as addressing the linguistic diversity of school communities. The university is primarily responsive to the people of California, as well as to the needs of the regional, national, and international communities it serves.

Global Learning Experience Requirement

All candidates in the Dual Language and English Learner Education multiple and single subject programs are required to participate in an organized experience working with students across the border. This requirement consists of two weekends or four days, one week prior to the beginning of the semester or during the first two weeks of the semester. Candidates work in small groups to create lesson plans to be implemented in Tecate or Tijuana, Mexico. This experience will give candidates the opportunity to work with border students in a Mexican school setting, practice lesson planning, and create community amongst cohort and faculty. Details for the experience will be provided upon acceptance to the program.

Language Requirement for the B.A. Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences

Students electing the study of American Sign Language to fulfill the language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts degree in liberal arts and sciences must successfully complete DLE 201  or the equivalent level of achievement. The usual sequence of coursework is DLE 101 , DLE 102 , and DLE 201 . Refer to section of catalog on “Graduation Requirements ” for additional ways to satisfy competency.

High School Equivalents

High school American sign language courses may be used for purposes of placement in college courses and may be counted toward meeting the language requirement in various majors. These high school courses will not count as college credit toward graduation.

Secondary school language courses can be used as follows:

  1. The first two years of high school level language count as the equivalent of the first semester of a college level course.
  2. The first three years of high school level language count as the equivalent of the first two college semesters.
  3. Four years of high school level language count as the equivalent of three college semesters or five college quarters, thus fulfilling the language requirement.
