About

The concentration in Literacy Education, part of The University of Maine’s PreK-12 Education Ph.D. program, focuses on theoretical research traditions, historical perspectives, and diverse epistemologies and methodologies that frame the study of literacy in varied settings, with emphasis on the distinct needs of rural areas. 

Overview

Through coursework, collaborative research and the opportunity to publish and present research findings, students develop the skills and strategies to answer their own questions related to literacy education.

Careers in literacy education

  • Graduates of our Literacy Education doctoral program at The University of Maine have gone on to serve in other academic institutions as professors and researchers, in government or nonprofit education organizations, and as members of the National Writing Project. 
  • Many of our graduates also work in schools, as administrators and curriculum coordinators with a strong understanding of current literacy research and practice.

Programme Structure

  • The program’s hallmarks include its selectivity, small size and close mentoring by nationally recognized faculty. Enrollment is limited to no more than 12 students, to ensure quality and close relationships with faculty. 
  • We prepare doctoral students to be literacy leaders and advocates in their communities.
