The School of Education’s bilingual credential graduates were recently featured on UCI’s homepage. As dual immersion programs grow, the need for more qualified bilingual teachers will be needed. Schools and districts start as early as March in the recruitment process to ensure they have enough bilingual teachers for their programs. It is not uncommon to have multiple openings at various schools. Some school districts in Orange County have up to 5 openings for the new year.
If you are interested in becoming a bilingual teacher at UCI, please visit one of the various information sessions or coffee chats held this summer at the School of Education. Priority Admission for 2016-17 is January 29, 2016 and if admitted and matriculated for Fall 2016, a $2,000 scholarship will be given to the applicant.
