The Department of Curriculum and Instruction/Literacy Studies prepares future educators and administrators who aspire to research, develop, and implement effective and innovative curricula for individuals ages pre-K to adult. Students are integrated in the field through practical experiences in diverse educational settings like subject-specific clinics, professional development classrooms, research-based approaches, and study abroad. Programs in elementary education, secondary education, curriculum and instruction, reading, higher education administration, and public education administration provide the knowledge and foundations to engage their students to excel in the classroom and beyond.
