Options include teacher education and professional development, leadership and policy; postsecondary learning environments; adult literacy education; reading, writing, and literacy across elementary, middle, and secondary curricula; children’s and adolescent literature; literacy policy, families, schools, and communities; and urban education.
The Ed.D. program in RWL features a strong commitment to educational practice and preparing practitioner-scholars.
