Literacy & Special Reading

Become a Reading Specialist!

The Master of Arts in Education, with an emphasis in Literacy, is designed to prepare teachers to focus on literacy development, instruction, and assessment of students with diverse learning and literacy needs. The course requirements for an Advanced Certificate in Special Reading are included within the Master’s coursework.

Certified K-12 teachers who wish to add an Advanced Certification in Special Reading can do so in an accelerated graduate program.  Teachers can work toward the advanced certificate, or with a few additional classes complete the Master’s Degree.
