For educators interested in literacy development from Kindergarten through Grade 12, this Reading program at the Bowling Green State University provides the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed for successful employment as a reading specialist and/or literacy coach. 


We offer a master degree in Reading at the Bowling Green State University. Teachers are prepared to provide specialized reading and writing instruction, to assess and diagnose literacy behavior, and to serve as resource persons in K-12 settings.

Programme Structure

  • Phase One consists of 15 semester hours (the Ohio K-12 reading endorsement courses). For full-time students, these courses are taken on campus during the Summer Literacy Institute, which begins in May each year. 
  • These courses are available online in fall, spring, and summer. EDTL 6220 is partially a practicum class that requires candidates to assess students at the early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence/young adult levels.  
  • EDTL 6280 is a 3-semester-hour supervised practicum course that requires candidates to provide intervention for children in each grade band (early, middle, secondary). Once these courses are completed, candidates take the state-required licensure exams (Ohio Assessment for Educators 038, 039), and apply to have the reading endorsement attached to the teaching license.
