Master of Education (MEd) in Reading Curriculum


Fieldwork plays an integral role, of which both the pre-practicum and practicum classes are components. You will complete 150 hours of supervised fieldwork, as part of the practicum, in two courses: Instructional Reading Clinic with Children (an intensive 6-week summer course) and Teacher Leadership Roles in Reading at the School Level. 

Students pursuing the M.Ed. without licensure as a reading specialist may substitute two approved literacy electives in lieu of the Instructional Reading Clinic and one approved literacy elective in lieu of the course EDU 845: Teacher Leadership. Students electing this option must meet with the program coordinator to select the electives and complete the required course substitution forms.

Finally, please remember if you are seeking an initial license as a specialist teacher of reading but not a master's degree, please visit our Licensure Only in Reading page.
