Literacy Education (MSEd)

Take a Class Affording School

Literacy Education
Master of Science in Education, B-6 or 5-12
Social justice can only be served when all children have the opportunity and support to become critically engaged readers and writers. As a student in this program, you will grow as a reader and writer, and learn how to create meaningful, culturally relevant literacy experiences for public school students.
Learning outside the classroom

You will gain real world experience through practicum courses and working in a variety of settings; from classroom work to opportunities to be involved with the Oswego Bookmobile Project, The Summer Writing Institute in Oswego and the Onondaga Nation School.

You will work closely with the program faculty, who maintain small course sizes in order to give each student the attention they deserve in this intensive program.

Improve your skills

As a graduate of this program, you will be able to work as a Literacy Specialist/Literacy Coach in New York State.

You will do more than expand your skill set as a classroom teacher, creating resourceful lessons and implementing successful literacy strategies; you will be on your way to helping your peers develop professionally.
