Literacy, Culture, and Language Education (LCLE) is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to explore their academic interests via a flexible curriculum.

The LCLE faculty and students come from a variety of backgrounds and work experiences. In the LCLE program, you are part of an engaging and thoughtful academic community, with small classes that encourage meaningful dialogue and faculty-student interactions.

Research foci include: Applied Linguistics, Literacy, Social Studies Education, Foreign and World Language Education, English Education, Elementary Literacy, Multicultural Education, ESL/Bilingual Education, and Writing. As an LCLE student, you choose a disciplinary foundation – Multilingual Education, Literacy Education, or Social Studies Education – but can gain expertise in the other areas.
