Master of Arts in Education: Language, Literacy and Culture

The Language, Literacy and Culture Program prepares educational leaders and scholars who understand, in complex and diverse ways, reading, language and literacy education, particularly as these relate to all issues of social justice and equity. This program emphasizes the development of critical and expansive perspectives on language and multiculturalism with a focus on the relevance of these for K-12 students from diverse ethno-linguistic backgrounds. Participants are encouraged to engage in leadership and research activities in a variety of settings at local, state and federal levels.
