Reading and Literacy Education offers a Master of Education (M.Ed.) and a Master of Arts in Education (M.A.E.) in reading education. Nationally accredited and highly ranked, both degree programs were developed to support practicing teachers, as well as prospective teachers, in promoting the literacy growth of all PreK-12 students.
Program curriculum is rigorous and up-to-date, reflecting the latest theories, innovative ideas, and best practices in reading/literacy teaching, learning, and assessment. Candidates learn evidence-based classroom practices and develop knowledge, skills, strategies, and disposition for supporting PreK-12 students’ language learning, literacy development, and academic achievement. They can pursue either degree online or on campus. Most candidates complete either degree program within 4 to 6 semesters.
