The Bilingual/Bicultural graduate degree program at Teachers College takes a sociocultural approach to the learning of languages and literacies. Through comprehensive and innovative coursework, hands-on experiences in New York City schools, and research projects, you’ll explore bilingual teaching and learning. While we address what it means for student success to speak, read, and write in more than one language, we emphasize learning through multiple languages. As both an academic and teacher education program, this flexible degree path will help you achieve your goals—whether that’s to advance your career as an educator, prepare for doctoral work, or do language policy or other work outside of the classroom.
