The University of Cincinnati’s Master of Education in Literacy and Second Language Studies is fully online and focuses on reading, writing, and speaking as language processes. A M.Ed LSLS degree will train you in the strategies needed to devise the tailored curriculum, interventions, and assessments for your students. Our program takes students on a journey to broaden and deepen their understanding of the social, cultural, linguistic and institutional factors that contribute to a learner’s ability to use reading, writing, and speaking in their first or second language. Our program is practitioner-based and students are paired with a faculty mentor throughout their program tenure.
The M.Ed program and Endorsement Graduate Certificates in Literacy and Second Language Studies importantly offers students flexibility in selecting the disciplinary concentration that applies most directly to his/her individual educational and professional goals.
In addition to your faculty mentor, every student enrolled online is assigned a dedicated Academic Advisor as well as a Student Success Coordinator that provides one-on-one support. They are your on-campus partners who can help you manage your time and ensure you’re meeting degree requirements to get you to graduation.
You can narrow your coursework to one of the following areas of concentration to tailor your educational experience.

In a society in which employment and economic advancement increasingly depend on more developed and specialized skills, the handicap of illiteracy can only grow more severe. Here is why you should receive your MEd LSLS degree with UC online:
You have the option to provide an original copy of scores taken within five years of the date of application. GRE scores are optional for admission to the Master’s degree program but are highly recommended to strengthen applications that may be weak in other areas. For example, applicants with less than a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 should include GRE scores with their application.
To ensure we receive the scores, both the university and the program to which scores are sent should be indicated on the order form. The code for the University of Cincinnati is 1833. You will then be prompted to select the program to which your scores are to be sent.
