The Bilingual Education Endorsement Program is a 12 credit-hour program. This program facilitates achievement of the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) bilingual education teacher competencies and provides a means for NM teachers to add the bilingual endorsement to their teaching licenses. The courses are systematically organized into a natural sequence of integrated subject matter. Spanish and English are both used as a language of instruction in EDUC 220 and EDUC 222. Participants must pass the “La Prueba” Spanish Language proficiency test before applying for the bilingual endorsement with the NMPED.
