DePaul offers several program options in Bilingual-Bicultural Education: a Bilingual-Bicultural master's degree, a Bilingual Education endorsement, and an English as a Second Language endorsement, as well as an
Early Childhood Bilingual/ESL endorsement. To be eligible to enroll in any of these programs, students must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university.
Educators seeking a Bilingual endorsement, an English as a Second Language endorsement, or an Early Childhood Bilingual/ESL endorsement must also hold a teaching license.
A complete application to one of DePaul's Bilingual-Bicultural Education programs will include the following materials:
Applicants who have earned a degree outside of the U.S. or who are considered international students must submit additional materials. Visit our International Students page for more information.
Applicants can upload supplemental application materials, send requests for letters of recommendation, and pay the application fee through our online application system.
The Bilingual-Bicultural Education program admits new students every quarter: fall, winter, spring and summer. It offers rolling admission, but the regular deadlines are set to assure students full consideration for admission and financial aid. The program will continue to accept and process applications after the regular deadline if space is available.
Applicants typically receive an admission decision 3-4 weeks after submitting a complete application.
