Curriculum and Instruction-Reading Specialist

Reading Specialist Header

The Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization as a Reading Specialist prepares individuals to become Literacy Leaders on a campus or in a district. This might include careers as an Instructional Coach or Curriculum Coordinator, or simply supplement an administrators’ knowledge based in the Science of Teaching Reading as required by HB3.

*NOTE*: If a prospective candidate’s experience has solely been in secondary grades only or the undergraduate coursework did not include foundational literacy/science of teaching reading, then RDG 501 will serve as a prerequisite.

A photo and a quote from Adrian Bolin. Quote- "I was so nervous about going back to school to get my Master’s as a Reading Specialist after teaching for 22 years.  However, my advisor at TAMUT was amazing and walked me through every step.  I’ve loved all of my professors who have gone above and beyond to answer all my questions and help me learn.  They are just a phone call or message away.  I am so thankful for all their support!  I am proof that it’s never too late to follow your dreams!"
