True to Loyola's Jesuit roots, Loyola’s graduate programs in literacy focus on literacy as a social justice issue and a right for all people – from children in public and private schools to community members, with the knowledge that literacy is the focus of all life-long learning endeavors. Our orientation toward literacy focuses on the many "ways" that people read and write in their lives, with specific attention to the cultural and social practices or activities that shape people's interaction with texts and contexts. We prepare experienced educators, educational leaders, and others to help students develop critical reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing skills and knowledge necessary to navigate their worlds both inside and outside school. Founded on principles of research, theory, and practice, our courses call on sociocultural and developmental theoretical perspectives in literacy to enhance teachers' understanding of the reading-writing-learning connections that allow students from diverse backgrounds to become confident, successful learners. Our M.Ed. has two tracks for experienced educators looking to serve as specialized literacy professionals in their communities, schools, districts, and states.
