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.
