Licensed teachers seeking advanced study in literacy are the focus of the M.Ed. in Language, Literacy, and Culture degree program. Within this 33 credit hour degree, there are two areas of concentration.
The Literacy concentration includes coursework that may be used to seek the add-on Literacy Teacher and Literacy Coach certification from the South Carolina Department of Education and may be used to fulfill requirements for Read to Succeed endorsements as mandated by recent legislation.
Those candidates choosing to complete the Language and Culture concentration will complete coursework which may be used to apply for the add-on ESOL certificate from the South Carolina Department of Education.
Teachers completing coursework have the opportunity to complete the State Department mandated practicum experiences with students in their respective local settings.
If at any point a candidate enrolled in a course is unable to clear a background check, that student may be removed from coursework.
