The Literary Scholars Program, housed at the Loyola/Notre Dame Library, offers a unique opportunity for graduate students in Loyola University's Reading Specialist master's program to participate in both clinic-based and school-based literacy services. The hands-on approach to education allows graduate students to gain experience with a wide range of ages and levels of difficulty, while also obtaining individualized mentorship and supervision from the Loyola Literacy Faculty. The Loyola Clinical Center community environment reflects Loyola's devotion to education and service—proving that integrated service can truly benefit the community, students, and professionals.
Loyola University's Reading Specialist master's program is recognized by the International Reading Association. Our student teachers are certified teachers trained in traditional methods as well as the most current advancements.
With this robust support system, your child receives the level of personal attention they need to gain skills, confidence, and a successful future. Ultimately, the program transforms struggling students into enthusiastic learners, facilitating a transformational process that expresses much more than words.
