Master of Science in Education

Reading

The M.S. in Reading program was designed to prepare students as reading specialists who might serve as administrators and supervisors of reading programs, literacy coaches, reading clinicians, and teachers of reading at both the elementary and secondary levels. Although participants are already certified in elementary or secondary education, this program may lead to additional Missouri certification in K-12 reading. All courses in this 32-hour program are offered on a face-to-face basis, online, or through ITV/distance learning to at least four sites. This course of study affords the opportunity for application of the learned skills in closely supervised developmental, diagnostic, and remedial reading situations.
