Applicants who are pursuing a Reading Endorsement and who meet Decision Point criteria will be admitted to enroll in up to 12 graduate semester hours required for completion of the Endorsement. These hours are concentrated in reading instruction. A Reading Endorsement may be added to any valid Ohio Teaching Certificate/License.

Reading Endorsement and major programs require a minimum of 125 clock hours of substantive field experience. These hours are distributed across the four required courses, culminating in a substantive field requirement (75-100 hrs) in EDUC 6670. Student performance in the field is formally evaluated by a university-appointed supervisor. Those applying for the Reading Endorsement must take the Praxis II test for reading. Because of the sequential nature of the Reading Endorsement courses, the student should seek the advice of the Education Advisor in the Graduate School at the beginning of the Reading Endorsement program.

Students wishing to enroll in the Reading Endorsement program must have the following prerequisite coursework:

  • EDUC 1700 - Phonics and Language Study: Early Childhood 4 hrs
  • Undergraduate-level reading methods course 4 hrs
