All teachers are teachers of literacy.  Literate learners are able to achieve things they never thought possible through interaction with the world through reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing, and visual representation. According to the International Literacy Association, even in this day and age, there are still millions of people all over the world who are denied access to literacy education. This master's degree will be of interest to those who want to learn how to more effectively teach literacy.
