Literacy is essential to learning, multidimensional in nature, and influenced by linguistic, psychological, and sociocultural factors. We prepare and support teachers and researchers to better understand pressing literacy issues and to meet the literacy needs of every student.

In this program you have the opportunity to develop knowledge in the areas of teaching reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary development. As a graduate, you be eligible to earn the Nevada Reading Specialist Endorsement. There are both on-campus and online versions for this degree program.

Students will develop an in-depth understanding of literacy development, instructional methods, assessment, and literacy in a digital environment. They will be familiar with the professional literature related foundations and research in literacy studies. Teacher leadership is stressed with graduates able to interpret and evaluate research findings and apply them to literacy instruction.
