The 16- and 32-credit 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 Certificate Programs in reading, language arts and literature will meet the need for a planned program. Students wishing to pursue this program option must schedule an advising appointment with the program coordinator. A plan must be in place before beginning the certificate program.
