Literacy Education

The literacy education graduate programs (master’s and Educational Specialist degrees) provide the opportunity to explore vital issues of literacy research and instruction with nationally recognized faculty. The programs are designed to engage students in authentic and practical experiences whether working directly with children or adults in our literacy clinic, engaging with students in their own classrooms, conducting research in field settings, or developing a student’s own writing skills in summer writing institutes. Depending on your career goals, our programs can lead to Maine certification in literacy education. Graduates emerge as strong advocates for literacy in their schools and communities.
