Literacy Certificate


About Our Program

The Literacy in Post-Secondary Settings Certificate is an 18 credit hour graduate certificate designed for students who want to increase their skill levels in providing research-based literacy instruction, particularly at the post-secondary level, but do not hold teacher certification.

The main objective of the Literacy in Post-Secondary Settings Certificate is to provide those who teach outside P-12 settings, particularly in community college, technical college, and adult education institutions, with advanced courses in literacy.

This certificate aligns with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accreditation guidelines as it provides those who currently teach or desire to teach reading classes18 hours of post-secondary literacy education coursework.
