Earn your master of science degree online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students

The MS in Reading degree is intended for people who work in literacy settings, yet not in the traditional B-12 school settings requiring teacher certification. For example, literacy volunteers, international students, parents, private school providers, after school program coordinators, counselors in prison settings, and so forth may apply for this graduate degree. It is also open to teachers with expired certification who are interested in working in the non-school setting. The intent of the program is to help graduate students learn about teaching literacy, especially how to engage children and young adults in literacy learning. While all students will take certain required courses, there is flexibility built into the program structure to encourage individual interests. This program does NOT lead to teacher certification.
