Elementary Bilingual Education
Elementary bilingual educators promote opportunities for all through mentorship and instruction.
They change lives by easing the transition for English-language learners and create safe academic environments for all students.
As an elementary bilingual education major at Kean, you engage in hands-on learning through field experiences in local public schools and co-teaching opportunities as you prepare for New Jersey teacher certification.
Once you graduate, you will continue the University’s longstanding tradition of excellence as you teach and lead in diverse and inclusive school environments, making a difference in the lives of young people and communities across the country.
At Kean, we believe learning extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms and labs. That's why we encourage you to get involved in clubs and organizations, study abroad at our campus in China or elsewhere, and pursue internships that will advance your career. Find out more.
What stands out to me about the bilingual education program is the clarity of what is required in order to graduate. The faculty guided me every step of the way, and the dedication my advisor provided was nothing short of astonishing. My professors also made a tremendous impact on my amazing college experience and prepared me to become the teacher I am today."
