Master of Arts in Reading Education

Prospective students should email the Graduate Office at grad@uncp.edu.

The Master of Arts in Education (M.A.Ed.) in Reading Education is designed for classroom and reading teachers to prepare them as leaders in the field of literacy instruction and as reading specialists.  Since the program builds on the knowledge base and experience of the practitioner, teachers who enter the M.A.Ed. must have professional teacher licensure. Graduate study in reading education will enable teachers to develop expertise in the teaching of reading, the diagnosis and remediation of problems, and the development of successful reading programs. Teachers will also have opportunities to develop leadership competence in the design, delivery, and assessment of reading and services. The Reading Education program is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and approved by the NC State Board of Education.
