The Reading and Literacy program is granted by the California State University East Bay and has been approved to be offered in a Hybrid delivery format. Candidates who have earned the Reading and Literacy Added Authorization or previously earned the Reading and Language Arts Specialist Credential, are eligible to continue their graduate studies and earn the M.S. degree. This program is 30 semester units: 14 units for the Reading and Literacy Added Authorization and 16 additional units beyond those required for the RLAA.
If you completed your credential within five years of the MS completion date (7 years with a waiver), you may complete the 30 units including the Reading Added Authorization courses (14 units) and MS courses (7 units) by bringing in 9 units of coursework from an accredited credential program. If you completed your credential over five years beyond MS completion date (7 years with a waiver), the electives TED 670, 671 and 672 may be completed to meet this remaining 9-unit requirement. The entire program, including the Reading and Literacy Added Authorization and the MS degree can be completed in one calendar year with the inclusion of 9 approved credential program units.
Gradutes may become specialists in Elementary and Secondary Literacy Development. They may also work in interventionist positions, such as Reading Intervention Teacher, Literacy Coach, District Literacy Specialist, Grade Level Chair, and/or Department Chair.
