The Chinese Bilingual Teacher Education (CBTE)

The Chinese Bilingual Teacher Education (CBTE) program prepares qualified Mandarin teachers to teach in both Chinese and English in K-12 bilingual immersion or foreign language classrooms. Successful graduates will complete a “3-in-1” program:
Master of Arts degree in Bilingual Elementary or Secondary Education,
and a Mandarin Bilingual Authorization.

Applicants admitted into the program will become part of a cohort (no larger than 20). The CBTE program meets the California teaching requirements through a research-based curriculum delivered by expert faculty. Small class sizes, along with the support and guidance from the faculty, administrators and staff, will ultimately lead to the certification of Chinese teachers eligible to teach at any elementary or secondary school in California.

For more information on the program, and for answers to your specific CBTE questions, email Dr. Olga Grimalt Moraga, the CBTE Program Director. Tel: 310.338.3778.
