The Master of Education in Reading (M.Ed.) program offers a 50-year legacy of augmenting the professional development of practicing educators, providing them with a challenging curriculum with a specialty in reading/literacy. The program offers institutional endorsement for Massachusetts licensure as Reading Specialist and meets NCATE accreditation.
The Master of Education in Reading program at Bridgewater State University is built on a foundation of growth for the professional educator. The program prepares educators for new professional roles by helping them learn to bridge theory and practice, foster values of diversity, and advance professionalism and ethical behavior. The curriculum balances content and pedagogical knowledge, clarifying and enhancing the development of the learner through language and critical thinking and expanding programmatic uses of resources and technologies. Prepractica and practica experiences foster collegiality and collaboration among students from the many programs within the School of Education and Allied Studies, throughout the college community, in their own schools and communities, and in professional organizations.
Graduates of the program serve the region’s schools in a variety of roles, including as early childhood and elementary classroom generalists with a specialty in reading/literacy, middle and secondary reading/ literacy and English language arts teachers, reading/literacy specialists or clinicians (all levels), and school or district reading/literacy curriculum leaders. Some graduates choose to continue their studies in doctoral programs.
