Frostburg State University’s Master of Education with a concentration in Literacy Education is designed for certified teachers or those who are eligible for certification and wish to specialize in improving student reading abilities. 


Through this Literacy Education program at Frostburg State University you will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to be certified as a reading specialist, literary coach or reading teacher. In addition to your core of nine credits in professional education, you will complete the 21-credit literacy core, a three-credit capstone master's research paper/project or thesis and three elective credit hours. The program is highly experiential and requires extensive interaction with students one evening per week through a two-semester reading clinic.


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates job growth of 13% through 2022 for instructional coordinators who specialize in reading. This is slightly higher than the average growth expected across all occupations. This means if you are a K-12 reading specialist who assesses reading abilities and prescribes curriculum to improve skills, your career prospects are favorable.
