Bilingual Extension

The Bilingual Extension Institute is directed by Professor Catherine Crowley, from the Speech Language Pathology program at Teachers College, Columbia University.  The Institute, in its 20th year, and at Teachers College for the past 14 years, has an 8-person faculty with 7 master clinicians/mentors.  It is discipline-specific, open only to bilingual speech and language providers.

The Bilingual Extension Institute at Teachers College Columbia University fulfills all requirements of the bilingual extension, except for the NYSED BEA, the language proficiency test.

The Institute is offered as a credit-bearing, non-degree program.
