Before they can run, students must learn how to walk. And before they can understand difficult content for a Regents-level course, students need to know how to read.
Why pursue a master’s degree in literacy? Because reading applies to every single discipline. Literacy isn’t just a field for reading specialists; it’s a marketable teaching skill, one that’s incredibly useful in helping students decipher tests.
Why choose SUNY Cortland’s graduate program? Because we place a special emphasis on preparing teachers to work with readers of all abilities. SUNY Cortland graduate students also discover a valuable degree that they can earn while staying in the classroom.
Our graduate programs in literacy range in credit hours from 33 (birth-grade 6 or grades 5-12) to 41 (birth-grade 12) and they provide candidates with the coursework and field experiences required to obtain certification in New York state.
