The Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Endorsement program is designed to prepare teachers to be sensitive and responsive to the needs of dual language immersion (DLI) learners and to become advocates for DLI in a variety of educational settings. Coursework is designed to address historical and political foundations of DLI education and methods and materials for engaging DLI students in challenging educational experiences. The UVU endorsement program is intended to provide educators with an opportunity to develop, expand, and integrate their knowledge of content, pedagogy, and cultural perspectives in dual language immersion education. Completed program coursework qualifies students to apply to the Utah State Office of Education for an endorsement to their current Utah Teaching License. USBE Education Endorsements are provided through the school district. UVU will accept up to 12 endorsement credits to apply toward a UVU M.Ed. Emphasis program.
