Language and Literacy M.Ed. Program

The Master of Education in Language and Literacy is a 33 hour degree program designed to meet the needs of South Carolina educators. The courses explore research-based practices and inquiry learning so that teachers can meet the needs of the state's diverse learners. Graduates of the M.Ed. become knowledgeable decision-makers in classrooms, special reading teachers in schools, and literacy leaders within school districts and other professional settings. Candidates can complete this degree as part time or full time students. Courses for the degree are offered on the Columbia campus. Districts, or consortia of districts may contract through extended campus to have courses offered onsite in their district via a blended Distance Ed model. Over three years USC faculty will provide the on-site delivery, and high quality facilitators will provide onsite support. The minimum of participants per site is 15 and the maximum is 25 participants.
