In response to the growing number of Georgia schools with Dual Language programs, the mission of this program is to prepare qualified educators who understand the history, theory, and practice of Dual Language Education.
Students may enter the program any semester and complete the program at their own pace. Requirements for the concentration include 12 hours of concentrated coursework in elementary (K-5) Dual Language Education and a 3 hour field-based practicum.
Educators with a Foreign Language Education (FLED) Certificate from the state of Georgia may also be eligible to earn a Dual Immersion Early Childhood Education Endorsement.
The courses are the same for the concentration and the endorsement. The endorsement is also available as a standalone program for educators with a FLED certificate. Questions about the concentration or the endorsement program should be directed to Cathy Amanti, Ph.D. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
