Welcome to the Literacy Specialist Program

The Literacy Specialist M.A. program leads to New York State certification in Teaching Literacy and prepares students to assume leadership roles in literacy education.

Students in the 32 point program are immersed in an intense study of practice, theory, and research. They investigate individual and group literacy learning, teacher development, community partnerships, institutional change, and other contemporary and political issues facing literacy education. Participants’ own literacy work plays an important role in their course work. Students write creatively as well as professionally, participate in reading clubs, and keep portfolios of their reading and writing development.
