VCU Reading Specialists Online

The M.Ed. in reading’s K-12 reading specialist concentration and the Post-master’s Certificate (PMC) for Reading Specialist are now offered online. Like their traditional face-to-face counterpart, the online version of these degrees are approved by the Virginia Board of Education, are nationally accredited and prepare graduates to meet the requirements for the Virginia endorsement as a K-12 reading specialist.

The online reading program offers students a high level of flexibility for managing their time and coursework. The program features interactive dialogues, asynchronous online discussions, synchronous online conversations and coaching opportunities.

An externship course enables candidates to work collaboratively to implement an action research project and share results of their learning through a virtual presentation. Candidates will be required to complete a three-credit internship, which enables candidates to provide intensive instruction to struggling learners, collaborate with colleagues and practice coaching skills under the direct supervision of VCU faculty.
