About this course
Becoming a certified Literacy Teacher is more than a step forward for your career. Our visionary program was specifically designed to align with state initiatives and prepare you for the future of education.
But more importantly, it will prepare you to improve your students’ futures. Literacy skills build the foundation of a child’s ability to learn—in all disciplines. As a certified Literacy Teacher, you will address our state’s educational goals by directly serving your students’ needs.
To gain admission to the Master of Education in Literacy Studies program, students must have earned a bachelor’s degree with an overall GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) from a college or university accredited by an agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Successful candidates will have obtained their Initial Educator Licensure and have at least one year of teaching experience (PK-12). Applications will be reviewed by the Admissions Review Committee, a committee within the Wiggins School of Education, who will determine student acceptance.
