Literacy, Learning and Leadership
Bachelor of Science
Want to make an impact on education that goes beyond the classroom? This fully online program provides the flexibility and depth you need to start – or finish – your bachelor’s degree.
Learning happens everywhere – not just in the classroom. A bachelor’s in Literacy, Learning and Leadership will prepare you to lead and facilitate learning opportunities outside of traditional learning environments. You’ll use justice-focused principles to create visionary plans that draw out and build upon the knowledge of learners from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
In this program, you build your own path to completion, working with numerous departments at the UA to expand digital literacy, foster social justice, and make a valuable difference in education on a local and global scale. Graduates often find jobs advancing literacy for families and communities, empowering learners from diverse educational environments, and promoting equity and educational access for all learners. You will also prepare to inform educational policy at the national, state and community levels and work in social services, education and outreach.
If you currently work in educational, developmental or nonprofit environments, you may be eligible to apply your employment as internship credit for up to 15 upper-level units toward your degree. The Literacy, Learning and Leadership program also lets you focus on your areas of expertise, such as experiential learning, recreational environments for children, child advocacy programs, and more.
