Bilingual Authorization Program (Spanish)

The CSUB Bilingual Authorization Program (BILA) is an add-on authorization for candidates already possessing a valid teaching credential and who have passed the CSET LOTE Subtest III. The program has been developed with local expert practitioners to meet the growing demand and need for bilingual educators in our region. The program consists of a three-course sequence offered in a hybrid format that will be taught bilingually in Spanish and English.
