Literature B.A. with Grades 4-8 English Language Arts and Reading Certification

Reading is Transformative

Delight in the power of words to create complex worlds and characters, to evoke ideas and emotions, and in your ability to imaginatively inhabit them. When you can appreciate the richness and subtlety of language, it sharpens your thinking, provides opportunity for reflection upon important questions, and gives space for you to express yourself effectively in creative and discursive writing. With a Bachelor of Arts in Literature with Grades 4 - 8 English, Language Arts and Reading Certification from University of Houston-Clear Lake, you enhance your own love of reading with developing the ability to help children build their vocabulary, improve their writing skills, and become lifelong readers, thus improving their lives and expanding their opportunities.
