At the master's degree level, students may emphasize study in the specialization of reading education.
Two master's degree options are offered in the reading education specialization. One is combined with Pennsylvania Reading Specialist Certification--the MEd plus Reading Specialist Certification, and this "general" Master's degree that does not include the Reading Specialist certification. This Master's degree may be selected by those who wish to have more choice in the development of their program. This program may be more appropriate for students whose native language is not English or who come from another country.
