Undergraduate Reading Minor

The reading minor is available to undergraduate students pursuing licensure as an elementary teacher or elementary special education teacher. A licensable minor is required for the MC-EA teaching license.

Students who obtain a reading minor will be better prepared to teach reading in their own classrooms and will have an excellent addition to their resumes. In addition, the reading minor may lay the groundwork for eventual graduate studies leading to licensure as a reading teacher.

The minor has 6 required courses and an additional 2 elective courses chosen from a list of options, for a total of 22 credits.
