Course Sequence

Since graduate students vary in the number of courses they want to take each semester, there is no model plan for completing the degree. When you meet with the MSEd-Literacy Advisor, you will plan a tentative schedule based on your individual needs.

The required courses are listed below with information about prerequisites (when required) and how and when the course is delivered.
