The reading education programs are designed for educators or other professionals interested in the study of individual readers and writers, reading/language arts instruction in the classroom and/or in the reading specialist setting, reading/language arts curriculum and assessment. A unique feature of these programs is that students become engaged in teaching literacy in a supervised practicum experience. With careful planning, licensed teachers can take course work that meets the requirements for obtaining the North Dakota Reading Credential.

Certified teachers with a bachelor’s degree in education may pursue either the Master of Education or the Master of Science. Non-certified individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree in a field of study other than education may only pursue the Master of Science.
