Learning outcomes

The Reading coursework at University of Texas Permian Basin is offered online and face-to-face. Upon completion, candidates qualify to take the Reading Specialist state exam. This can lead to a recommendation from UTPB for the Master Reading Teacher Certification. By adding only two additional courses, candidates may also qualify for the English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher certification. Candidates who have a Master's in Education prior to program acceptance often take fewer hours and earn a certification as a Reading Specialist. For those seeking post-baccalaureate teacher certification, the Reading Specialist program is a complementary; many courses that lead to teacher certification may also be applied to the Reading Specialist credentials. Currently, UTPB has a 100% pass rate on the state Reading Specialist exam.
