Master of Education in Reading

The Master of Education in Reading will enhance the graduate student's knowledge of the reading process with current theory and research as well as classroom application. The graduate student will develop the ability to work directly or indirectly with students who have either failed to benefit from regular classroom instruction in reading or those who could benefit from advanced training in reading skills.

The program also emphasizes the ability to work with teachers, administrators, and other professionals to improve and coordinate the total reading program of the school. This program is ideal for classroom teachers, media specialists, special teachers of reading, reading consultants, and reading supervisors.

The Ohio Reading Endorsement may also be earned while working on the M.Ed.
