Literacy Education (M.S.Ed.)
The M.S.Ed. in literacy education prepares experienced teachers to be socially responsible practitioner scholars to work and learn within multicultural and multilingual contexts to foster literacy and language development for all learners across the lifespan. Students wishing to complete Illinois State Board of Education certification, endorsement, or approval in a literacy education field should refer to the section on Certification at the Graduate Level.

The major in elementary education emphasizes focused study to strengthen and broaden the professional preparation of teachers for the elementary school. In addition to the basic requirements, course work will be determined on the basis of the individual student's undergraduate preparation, experience, and professional goals.

We are planning to offer the Master of Arts in Teaching with a new cohort beginning in fall 2013. This graduate program leads to an initial license in elementary education. More program information can be found in the graduate catalog.
