About

The Hofstra University's MSED program in Literacy Studies (Birth-Grade 6 or Grades 5-12) is designed to guide certified teachers in becoming literacy specialists who deliver high-quality literacy instruction, and who offer literacy and curriculum leadership to schools and school districts.

Overview

Key facts:

  • The Hofstra University's MSED program in Literacy Studies (Birth-Grade 6 or Grades 5-12) reflects advances in literacy research and policies that are consistent with the New York State Board of Regents requirements. The program provides graduate students with the most current understandings of literacy learning theories, pedagogical practices for use with students in early childhood to grade 12 classrooms, children's and adolescent literature, assessment practices, and literacy support for culturally and linguistically diverse learners, and for students with special needs.

Graduate students in the Literacy Studies program meet the educational requirements for certification as literacy teachers in early childhood and childhood education, birth through grade 6, or middle childhood and adolescence, grade 5 through grade 12.
