The 18-credit licensing program leads to a Wisconsin DPI license certification in Bilingual Education (WDPI 023). The program is designed for experienced teachers who wish to add this certification. All courses are 3-credits each and may be applied towards completion of the MA-Education in Bilingual Education. Bilingual Licensure courses are available either online or in the classroom. Each online course begins with a single mandatory face-to-face orientation meeting. That meeting is held on a weeknight or Saturday at the Monroe Street Campus as designated by the professor.
