Language, Literacy and Sociocultural Studies offers programs leading to doctoral (Ph.D.) and master’s degrees (M.A.) focusing on language and literacy education and the social and cultural study of educational institutions and practices. The program offers a rigorous but flexible course of studies that can be tailored to meet a wide range of interests and needs. All students are expected to develop a program of studies combining course work in language, literacy and sociocultural studies with course work in related disciplines in the College of Education and other colleges. The program places special emphasis on helping students develop research and inquiry skills needed for the advanced study and analysis of education in its many social, cultural, economic and political contexts.

Deadlines for the M.A. are September 15 for admittance for Spring, and February 1 for Summer and Fall semesters. M.A. applications are reviewed after these deadlines. The deadline for Ph.D. candidates is December 1, for the following fall semester. Applicants to the doctoral program are reviewed after December 1. Documents describing the programs and guidelines for application are available upon request from the department office.
