How You Learn
You’ll take courses one at a time in 8 week blocks to allow intense study of concept. Practicum and internship experiences designed to be completed in your own school division are embedded throughout the program. No face to face meetings are required.
Upon completion of this program, students will have earned an M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction w/ Reading Specialist Endorsement. This program may lead to a position as a reading specialist, coach, or interventionist.
