Administered by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction within the College of Education. The minor in Bilingual/E.S.L. provides students the opportunity to develop an understanding of the role of language in society, how an individual functions in a society where his/her primary language is not the primary language of the society, and how a second language is acquired. This understanding is useful for those working in a bilingual or E.S.L. classroom, workplace or social service organization. It also provides the individual with insight into the bilingual society of the Southwestern United States.
The total semester hours required for the minor in Bilingual/ESL is 18. At least 9 of the credit hours must be at the upper level.
