Reading Specialist Certification
This program does not provide initial teaching or reading specialist certification; however, you may take course work to satisfy requirements leading to a Missouri Reading Specialist Certification.
If you wish to work toward the DESE Reading Specialist Certification, please send your undergraduate and any graduate work transcripts to Dr. Renee Kruep at KruepRe@missouri.edu. She will evaluate your transcript to confirm which courses you need to earn the certificate. Most of these courses can be taken as part of the master’s degree.
Obtaining this certificate may require some course work on Mizzou's campus, and the total credit hours may exceed the 30 required for the M Ed.
