Reading COncentration — Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction


The Literacy Education strand of the Curriculum and Instruction Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Reading Education, English Education, Teaching English as a Second Language, and Foreign Language Teacher Education encompassing dimensions of language, culture, and literacies broadly defined as they relate to urban education. The Literacy Education strand uses an apprenticeship model of teaching and learning, meaning that students are encouraged to work closely with faculty whose research interests, methodological approaches, and theoretical frameworks align with their own.
