New grad program in Literacy launched



The College of Education has launched a new master’s graduate program in Literacy. This Birth to Grade 12 Graduate Literacy program will prepare students for two New York State Reading Specialist certifications.

Fredonia’s Graduate Literacy program follows a cohort model for enrollment. New students will start the program in the fall semester and become part of a cohort that moves through the program together. Students attending full-time are on track for a two-year completion, while students attending part-time may have a three-year completion period.

Upon completion, students will have earned 100 hours of practicum and field experience, including 25 hours at each of four state-designated grade ranges: Kindergarten through Grade 2; Grades 3 through 5; Grades 6 through 8; and Adolescent. Students will also be eligible for both New York State Certifications as a Reading Specialist: Birth to Grade 6, and Grades 5 to 12.

Applications can be submitted at any time, but the deadline for Fall 2015’s enrollment is April 30. Part of the application process now includes taking the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) before starting graduate classes. Interested in learning more? Contact the Graduate Studies Office in E230A Thompson Hall, or (716) 673-3808.
