The Critical Global Literacies Graduate Certificate focuses on understanding how literate practices across the globe help to situate students as citizens of the world. Language is crucial to globalization and distinctly intertwined with race and culture. The courses in this certificate are thus focused on cross-cultural perspectives, anti-racist pedagogies, and decolonizing the literacies of racialized, multilingual and/or immigrant populations.

The certificate is relevant for those who work in K-12, adult, and teacher education contexts as well as those focused on broad issues of literacy in the global marketplace (business, health, security). Our program connects networks of literacy educators and advocates who partner with our communities to work towards literacy access and justice for all.


Students must apply and be admitted into the Graduate Certificate to be eligible to receive a Graduate Certificate. Visit the USF Catalog to learn more about admissions and curriculum requirements.
