Language, Literacy and Culture
Inquiry and scholarship
Our degree studies focus on the ways in which language, literacies and culture are integrally linked in K-12 and adult teaching and learning contexts. We examine the social, cultural and political constructions and institutions that affect language, literacies and culture education from various theoretical lenses and through diverse research methodologies. Much of our coursework and scholarship aligns with the following five disciplinary pillars:
- Sociocultural perspectives on LLCE
- LLCE social justice and equity
- LLCE leadership, policy, agency and advocacy
- Literacies and language education
- New literacies studies
- Children’s and young adult literature
Our expert faculty are here to help you achieve academic and personal success, including working closely with you throughout your degree and engaging in collaborative research, scholarly projects, and community engagement.
