Master of Education in Reading

The Graduate Reading Program

Bowling Green State University's Graduate Reading Program has enjoyed a long tradition of excellence since its inception. The Program has been reviewed by outside agencies such as the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Ohio Department of Education as part of the College accreditation process. Internally, the faculty, and students annually review the programs and modify as needed.

The Pre-K-12 Reading Endorsement Program leads to an endorsement on a valid teaching license. In addition to the five course sequence, endorsement seekers must successfully complete the state-prescribed licensure exam.

The Master of Education in Reading also leads to reading endorsement. However, in addition to the endorsement, candidates extend and refine their literacy knowledge and skills.

The Specialist in Education program is a post masters program and provides for more in-depth study of literacy acquisition and development. The four-course cognate allows candidates to extend their understandings by investigating related areas.

Career Paths

Program graduates have contributed to the literacy development of children, adolescents and adults nationally and internationally as well as throughout the State of Ohio. School districts have actively recruited graduates as elementary, secondary, remedial reading, vocational school, technical college, and two and four year college developmental reading teachers. Alumni have been recruited for leadership positions in state departments of education, as well as sales representatives and editors for various publishers.
