Bilingual Authorization (BILA) Pathway

The BILA pathway in the CSULB Multiple Subject and Single Subject Credential Programs allow students to obtain the additional Bilingual Authorization (BILA) to teach in Dual Language classrooms.  This pathway is for candidates that wish to teach in classrooms where the language of emphasis is appropriate for instruction and in situations where teachers use the target language for explanation, preview-review, and interaction with families.

The BILA pathway is available for candidates in any of the Post-Bac Pathways as well as the ITEP Undergraduate Pathways.

At CSULB we offer Bilingual Authorizations in the following language areas:

  • Korean
  • Mandarin
  • Spanish
  • Vietnamese
