Program Description:

The 16- and 32-credit post-master’s graduate certificates in reading, language arts and literature are intended for two different groups of students: Students with little background in reading and, Students who have completed a MAT in reading and language arts. If you have little or no reading, language arts or children’s literature background, the options available will enable you to gain a basic understanding of literacy instruction and provide invaluable information on current trends and issues in the field. Since some school districts now require planned 15- and 30-hour programs, the post-master’s graduate certificate programs in reading, language arts and literature will meet the need for a planned program.
