Hunter College School of Education plans to add a French track to its Bilingual Education programs.
Based in New York City, Hunter College has offered a Master’s in Bilingual Education for Spanish-speaking teacher-candidates since 1983, as well as a bilingual extension for those who already hold New York State teacher certification. In an effort to extend its expertise to French-speaking teacher-candidates, Hunter College hopes to offer two French-specific bilingual education courses starting in January 2012.
Teachers who successfully complete the French track of the Master’s in Childhood or Early Childhood Bilingual Education will be eligible to apply for teaching positions in New York City’s French dual language programs. Teachers who have initial or professional certification in Early Childhood Education or Childhood Education and want to teach in bilingual programs may apply for the Advanced Certificate in Bilingual Extension.
