Literacy Education, Graduate Certificate
The Literacy Education certificate is intended for educators who hold an initial teaching license and wish to become highly qualified teachers of reading. It consists of five courses, with embedded field-experiences and can lead to a reading endorsement at either the elementary or secondary level.
Prospective certificate-only students should apply for admission to Marshall University as a Certificate/Professional Development student and select on the application form the certificate they wish to pursue.
In addition, they must have:
- an initial undergraduate degree in education from a regionally accredited college or university; and
- a valid teaching license.
A Plan of Study approved by the student's advisor must be on file with the Literacy Education program within 30 days of acceptance into the program. The Plan of Study is a student's "blueprint" for completing graduation requirements.
