Reading/Language Arts Fully Online

All of our Reading/Language Arts programs—K-12 Reading Specialist, Elementary Reading, and Secondary Reading—can be completed fully online. Courses are offered online using a web-based learning environment. The course readings, assignments, projects, and activities are the same as our on-campus program, but they are shared via online platforms. Although there are no required face-to-face campus class sessions, online courses include required synchronous learning sessions where the instructor and students meet together in a virtual classroom.

The Online Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Literacy Studies was selected as one of the U.S. News & World Report Best Online Graduate Education Programs.
