LYST 362 A-Z - Sociolinguistic and Psycholinguistic Perspectives of Literacy


Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Courses in this doctoral core draw from the disciplines of sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, developmental psychology and reader response theory. The focus is on understanding reading and writing processes embedded in social practices and the ways in which people construct and transact with written texts. Investigations of oral language, language learning, relationships between oral and written language, and relationships between semiotic systems (literacy, art, music) are integral to understanding literacy as a language process. Historic and current theoretical frameworks and models of reading and writing and related research practices within a variety of social contexts (classrooms, clinics, communities, families) are addressed. Specific titles and course descriptions for special topics courses are available in the online class schedule.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Doctoral student or permission of the instructor, or matriculated MA/MSED student with permission of the Literacy Studies doctoral program director and the student’s program advisor.
