The Curry School of Education offers the M.Ed. and Ed.S. degrees (post-graduate professional) in reading instruction and two doctoral-level degrees, the Ed.D. and the Ph.D. In addition, two certificate programs are available-- the Reading Specialist certificate (face-to-face or hybrid) and Adolescent Literacy certificate (online or hybrid). The M.Ed. and Ed.S. degrees and Adolescent Literacy certificate can be taken in Charlottesville, online or at our regional centers (Northern Va., Richmond, or Newport News). The Reading Specialist certificate is a hybrid program, available through regional centers and in Charlottesville. Doctoral degrees are available in Charlottesville.
Graduates of the reading program area at the University of Virginia teach children in elementary and secondary classrooms, coach colleagues in exemplary schools, train future teachers in colleges and universities, and conduct research.
The reading program at the University of Virginia is nationally recognized for both research and practice.
