Literature Specialization

The Literature specialization is an optional part of the Early Childhood/Elementary Teacher Education program. The Literature specialization will give students a foundation in literature, allowing them to have a well-rounded education. Your faculty advisor in the Division of Education & Human Studies will help you map out the best academic path to reach your desired career and/or graduate studies goals.

The important skills you develop through the Literature specialization sequence of courses will give you a tremendous advantage in the marketplace when you begin your job search-the knowledge students gain is valued by schools and graduate programs because students learn how to express themselves clearly and concisely.
