MEd in Reading

"The online format of the Masters in Reading Program allows students the ease and flexibility to complete the program in as little as 20 months. The summer Reading Clinic affords students the opportunity to work with their instructors and peers in a face to face setting while applying the skills and knowledge learned in their previous coursework. Students who complete the Reading Program are well trained to become leaders in their schools as literacy coaches and reading specialists." -Dr. Kristin Webber- Program Head

This program will enable students to obtain a Master's Degree in Reading and will qualify them for certification as a reading specialist (upon passing the PRAXIS exam)*. This professional training is essential in diagnosing and helping children overcome reading disabilities, as well as in promoting developmental and interventional reading practices in schools.
