The Bilingual Education Endorsement Program is a 12 credit-hour program. This program facilitates achievement of the New Mexico Public Education Department bilingual education teacher competencies and provides a means for New Mexico 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 2615 and EDUC 2630. Participants must pass the La Prueba Spanish Language proficiency test before applying for the bilingual endorsement with the NMPED.
