Program Philosophy

This program focuses on the integrated connections among all the literacies (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and more recently, viewing and technology) as a foundation for understanding the various content areas. The 33-credit hour program is designed for licensed teachers who wish to enhance their professional preparation in the field of reading/literacy and/or prepare for other responsibilities in education, such as school reading coordinator. The conceptual framework for this graduate program is based on the five core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and the International Reading Association Standards. Candidates who complete this program will earn AA licensure in Remedial Reading, grades K-8 or 7-12.

Program Goals

  1. To provide continued intellectual growth and leadership preparation for in-service educators seeking advanced professional development in the Reading/Literacy area.
  2. To provide a personalized learning environment for graduate students interested in a broad perspective of diversity including language, culture, gender, and learning exceptionalities of all types.
  3. To provide a service to the community and state in supporting the goals of the Mississippi Reading Initiative.
  4. To provide add-on licensure in Reading for those completing the program
