Department of Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Education (LLSC)

The Department of Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Education includes academic programs in bilingual education, English as a Second Language (ESL) education, literacy education, urban education, and secondary (middle & high school) education in the humanities areas (English, Social Studies, World Languages, and Theatre). Students in our programs consider their roles as educators in a broad context, exploring the connection and tensions that exist among schools, cultures, and society.

The department has highly qualified faculty that seek to maximize students' educational experience at Rowan University. All of our programs are approved by the New Jersey Department of Education and are nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The department operates the Rowan Reading Clinic that serves P-12 children in the greater south Jersey region and is committed to serving the university and the community through its programs, partnerships and outreach.
