Reading Specialist (K-12) Endorsement

Courses in the Reading Specialist endorsement (K-12) program are a subset of courses in the Reading Specialist master’s degree program. Students who complete the endorsement program have the option to continue coursework if they want to eventually earn a full master’s degree in this area.

The Reading Specialist endorsement (K-12) program and Reading Specialist master’s degree are designed for practicing educators and are not open to students seeking a first teaching license. Applicants must already hold a valid Illinois Professional Educator License (PEL).
