Bilingual Childhood Education (A.A.)

The Bilingual Childhood Education Program offers a liberal arts degree that prepares you to continue in a teacher education program at a senior college in order to become certified in Bilingual Childhood Education (first through sixth grades). The program is designed for a seamless transfer to the teacher education program at City College.Students will participate in classrooms for elementary school-age children as part of their coursework.

Transfer Options

After meeting BMCC/CCNY requirements (minimum of 2.5 GPA, completion of all courses in the curriculum with grades of C or above, an interview with City College School of Education faculty, and a passing score on the LAST or City College SEAT), students in this jointly registered program are accepted at the School of Education at City College where they can complete the Bachelors of Science in Education and apply for initial teaching certification for first through sixth grades.
