Earn your master of science in education degree online
You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students
Literacy training applies to every single subject area, and our department offers one robust graduate program that provides two certifications. A master’s degree in literacy makes you a more specialized, marketable and effective teacher.
SUNY Cortland-trained literacy interventionists are sought by school districts throughout New York state. You can take your knowledge and skills to the classroom or become a reading coach or specialist in a school or district setting.
You'll change the lives of students who have struggled to learn to read, helping them discover and surmount the obstacles to literacy and improving their ability to succeed — as students, professionals and members of society.
