Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Reading program is developed with the professional teacher in mind. The program will build on the teacher's knowledge base by incorporating curriculum with real world learning in the classroom, school, or other learning environments. The Master of Arts Program in Reading prepares a student to function more effectively as a classroom teacher; to direct reading programs, staff development and curriculum development at a school level and for many literacy-related tasks. By completing the Master of Arts in Reading students fulfill the requirements for institutional recommendation for endorsement as a K-12 Reading Teacher. Students seeking endorsement must provide evidence of two or more years of teaching experience in an accredited and/or established elementary, middle, or secondary school while holding a Type A or teaching license equivalent certificate before such recommendation is made. Students wishing to obtain Colorado licensure in reading are required to pass a State of Colorado administered proficiency examination (PLACE – Reading). The Master’s program in Reading is offered at the Loveland and Denver Centers and on our University of Northern Colorado Greeley campus.
