Why Study Community-Based Literacy as Applied Linguistics at UND?
The graduate certificate in Community-Based Literacy as Applied Linguistics is designed to prepare students to facilitate the design, construction and management of community-based literacy programs, particularly in multilingual societies outside the United States.
The nature of these literacy programs depends on the desires and goals of the communities and their local governments. These programs may take a variety of forms, such as:
- Adult functional literacy (in the domains of health, agriculture, etc.)
- Rights-based literacy
- Literacy in the local language first with transition to biliteracy
- Transfer of literacy skills from the language of wider communication to the local language
No professional educational accreditation is associated with the certificate, but the certificate itself can be an important credential for students who anticipate working in literacy and language development in other countries.
