- 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.
- Through face-to-face, hybrid and online courses, as well as a depth of field projects and clinical work, our program prepares literacy specialists and classroom teachers to provide support and nurturing of readers and writers, and to facilitate assessment driven instructional planning and professional learning within a school. 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.
