Bilingual Special Education, Advanced Certificate
The Bilingual Special Education Extension Program is for teachers who already possess initial, provisional, permanent, or professional certification in special education. The program leads to an endorsement for an extension to the special education certification to teach bilingual special education. The program does not lead to an academic degree.
Individuals who are matriculated in an initial teacher education program in special education at Fordham University may also apply.
In addition to the general admissions requirements for the Graduate School of Education, applicants must have the following:
- IELTS1: 7 for General Test Score; no subtest can be lower than 6
- TOEFL1: 577 for paper test, 90 for Internet-based (IBT) test
- minimum of 3.0 GPA in graduate work
- two professional/academic recommendations
Scores can be no more than two years old.
