Graduate Certificates in Dual Language Education / ESOL – Online

Dual Language Education curriculum

OSU’s Graduate Certificate in Dual Language Education will enable you to effectively educate your students in dual language settings. Dual language education draws from linguistics, language pedagogy, second language acquisition, multicultural education, education policy and program administration.

By successfully completing all 21 credits in this program, you will add a DLE specialization to your résumé.

To view complete curriculum details for the online DLE certificate, please visit Oregon State’s official academic catalog.

The online coursework is based on six core domains from the Oregon Administrative Rules:

  1. Language
  2. Culture
  3. Planning, Implementing, and Managing Instruction
  4. Assessment
  5. Professionalism
  6. Community and Family Engagement

Additional program features

Internship: You must participate in a 3-credit internship within the state of Oregon in order to successfully complete this program. If you currently work in a dual language classroom, this requirement can be completed in your classroom without the need to take a leave of absence for an off-site internship.
