Master of Education in Developmental Studies with a focus on Literacy & Language Education
This program emphasizes the integration of theory and research on language and literacy acquisition, development, and intervention. The program is designed for students interested in the development of literacy (reading and writing) and language in a preschool, school, family, or community setting. You may focus on specific areas such as literacy, language development, bilingual education, second language education, or intercultural studies.
The master’s degree program is designed for professionals who wish to study the theoretical and research knowledge that informs practice and further research.
Graduates of the master’s degree program pursue a number of different career paths. Some establish professional affiliations with organizations concerned with literacy and language development in adults. Those with teaching licensure bring their expertise to a school setting as a classroom teacher or specialist in literacy and language education. Yet others pursue careers in research and policy, and often choose to continue with education and research as doctoral students.
