This degree is designed for teachers who wish to address the demanding literacy needs of their students or who may wish to serve in grades 5-12 settings at some point in their careers.
The degree provides teachers with extended research-based knowledge in the areas of literacy development and processes, diagnosis and remediation of literacy difficulties, teaching linguistically and culturally diverse learners, and supervision of reading and literacy programs.
The 30-credit hour degree can be completed in as little as a year on campus (summer, fall, spring) or at the Buffalo Center (fall, spring, summer, fall).
The MSED in Adolescent Literacy meets the criteria for, and may be used in partial fulfillment of, the requirements for initial and professional certification in the state of New York.
The only candidates recommended for reading certification in New York by the School of Education are those who have completed the master's degree in its entirety.
If you wish to apply to this program, please contact the Graduate Admissions Office at St. Bonaventure University at (716) 375-2021 or firstname.lastname@example.org for graduate admission materials.
