TWU Offers Bilingual Teacher Preparation Program in Dallas

TWU Offers Bilingual Teacher Preparation Program in Dallas

8/7/02


DENTON — A new Texas Woman's University program will address one of the most serious aspects of the state's teacher shortage — the growing need for highly qualified bilingual education teachers — while offering Dallas-area residents the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree at public university tuition rates.

The program, a collaboration between TWU and the El Centro and Richland campuses of the Dallas County Community College District, will lead to a bachelor of science degree in interdisciplinary studies with preparation for certification in bilingual education. Students may complete their freshman and sophomore courses at DCCD and transfer those credits into the TWU bachelor's degree program. TWU's junior and senior level courses will be taught at the Universities Center at Dallas, 1901 Main St. Courses are taught by full-time TWU faculty who are assigned to the UCD site in downtown Dallas.

Students complete their programs by student teaching or by participating in a teaching internship through partnerships between TWU and the Dallas Independent School District or another school district in the region.

TWU also offers courses at UCD in partnership with the Dallas ISD Alternative Certification program for teacher preparation.

For more information on TWU's bilingual teacher preparation program in Dallas, contact the Department of Teacher Education at (940) 898-2271.
