The Literacy Department helps to prepare undergraduates, graduates, and professional educators to be reflective teachers.

Our students learn to construct and convey understandings about:

  • language and literacy development
  • literacy instruction
  • assessment

Literacy courses also teach students to recognize the positive contributions of cultural, linguistic, and ethnic diversity.

Students within our Literacy programs graduate with the tools they need to facilitate the development and learning of their students. They will also graduate with the knowledge to lead and meet the changing educational needs within their communities.

Our department's esteemed faculty instills students with a philosophy that reflects the core goals of our programs while also remaining open to new ideas and experiences. We invite you to read more about our teaching philosophy from our Mission Statement and Conceptual Framework .
