ATTENTION: This program will no longer accept external applicants. The T&L EdS has transitioned to a transfer-in-only option for current T&L PhD students who not opt to complete their degree but still want to earn a credential. Students who wish to transfer into the EdS program should consult with their faculty advisor. The T&L EdS program will eventually phase out.

The Literature for Children and Young Adults specialization is the ideal way to increase your knowledge of theory and practice with courses that help you improve literacy education by developing instruction that instills motivation and creates meaningful reading experiences.
