The Department of Literacy Education offers three different graduate degree programs:
Students must satisfy the general admissions requirements for graduate study at NJCU. Applicants must have a 3.0 or better GPA for admission to the program, and must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better to graduate. Candidates should contact the department and arrange an interview upon application to the program.
Individuals who already possess a master's degree and graduate credits in literacy education may qualify for certification-only course work. The NJ State Department of Education must review transcripts to determine eligibility for certification and identify any additional course requirements needed to quality.
