The online Master of Science in Education with a specialization in Literacy helps individuals open gateways to learning and teaching that allows them to open a lifetime of learning and opportunity for their students. The curriculum offers the tools needed to create lifelong learners and tailor literacy interventions to each child’s ability while helping individuals gain an appreciation for the “big picture” surrounding literacy and feel inspired to make a positive difference in students’ lives.
