The Literacy Education program offers certificates of graduate study, masters degrees, and certificates of advanced study in literacy education. The Literacy Education program is designed to provide educators with a thorough understanding of literacy development, process, and instruction.
Since literacy is the foundation for school success in every curricular area, and it profoundly affects the personal lives of all citizens, the importance of effective literacy teaching and learning cannot be overemphasized. The purpose of the program is to develop and support leaders in literacy education. Commitment to the promotion of multicultural literacy is reflected in an ESL concentration, the only one of its kind in Maine.
