Multicultural Education

The Multicultural Education graduate program explores theoretical and pedagogical issues of bilingualism, multiculturalism, educational equity, and social justice, offering courses and experiences to assist educators to work successfully in classrooms, schools, and educational agencies within our diverse State. The curriculum develops student's pedagogical, analytical, and planning skills in order to prepare them to operate effectively in the development, implementation and analysis of educational policies and programs affecting the academic lives of low income, and culturally and linguistically diverse K-12 students.

The faculty's role in the preparation of students mirrors what the program seeks to promote in the public schools. The program encourages our credential and graduate students to use of languages other than English in the university and classroom settings. Instructors and University supervisors have backgrounds that include expertise and experience in the areas of bilingual and multicultural education. We strive to support our students in the examination of educational theories and methods from a multicultural perspective, taking into account gender, race, language, social class, and disability. Finally, we work towards preparing students to take an active role in the reconstruction of the education system into one that is equitable for students from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds.
