The LLE Ph.D degree was designed to provide rich opportunities for advanced study and research related to language and literacy education.

This program examines the relationships of literacies in language, and language in literacies, across communities, societies, instructional environments, and informal learning settings.

We are still accepting applications for the LLE flexible-time Ph.D. program for the 2019-20 academic year. Apply NOW to receive our decision in Spring 2019.
