What sets apart our Masters in Literacy Education (MA) Program?
The program’s flexible, part-time format is designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working educators. The program is typically completed part-time over two years, allowing you the option to complete courses at your desired pace. Coursework includes some online courses along with interactive evening classes held on the UM-Flint campus.
While earning your MA in Literacy Education, you’ll gain practical experience completing clinical work with students in the UM-Flint School of Education and Human Services Reading Center. This real-world experience allows you to put coursework into practice and emerge better prepared to make a meaningful difference in the classroom.
SMALL CLASSES with passion
You’ll complete the MA in Literacy Education program with small groups of fellow educators who share your passion for student success. This structure enables you to develop a strong support network for personal and professional development.
Become a reading specialist
The program prepares you to take the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification and add the Reading Specialist (BR) endorsement to your teaching certificate. As a Reading Specialist, you’ll be qualified to teach reading as a special subject and serve as a building resource professional, such as a reading specialist or literacy coach.
Learn from doctoral-level faculty with extensive working experience as educators and literacy experts. Your faculty mentors will guide you in the real-world application of your classroom lessons, and are committed to supporting your success throughout the program and beyond.
As part of the world-renowned University of Michigan system, UM-Flint students have access to additional resources, expertise, and contacts at our sister campuses in Dearborn and Ann Arbor.
