Master of Education in Literacy

NOTE: The Master of Education in Literacy is not currently admitting new students.

 

Applicants for admission to the Master of Education degree in literacy must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, and must meet the following requirements to be eligible for consideration: 

  1. Submit online Graduate School application and non-refundable application fee;

  2. Submit a copy of your current South Carolina Department of Education Class III Professional Certificate or the equivalent from another state. This should be uploaded in your online application;

  3. Submit official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate coursework. Official transcripts should be sent directly to Winthrop University from the issuing institution(s);

  4. Submit official test scores for either*:

    the General test of the GRE. Preferred scores are 151 on the Verbal Reasoning section, 153 on the Quantitative Reasoning section, and 3.5 on the writing portion.

     OR

     the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) with a preferred score of 392.

    * The standardized test score requirement is waived if you have earned a previous Master's degree or if your undergraduate GPA is at least 3.0.

  5. Present two letters of recommendation from professional references that relate to your professional goals. In the online application you will be required to provide the names and email addresses of two individuals from whom you have requested letters of recommendation. These two people will then receive an email instructing them to upload the letter into our online application system. It's a good idea to talk with these individuals ahead of time so they will be expecting the email when they receive it.
