MA Teaching Reading

Preparing Teachers to Maximize Literacy Development for All Students.

The Master of Arts in Teaching Reading/Reading Certificate Program (MATR) is designed to help teachers follow USF’s mission to pursue social justice and the common good by ensuring that all students have fair access to high-quality education with a foundation in literacy.

The program prepares K-12 educators as reading professionals who provide expert literacy instruction in their own classrooms, work as reading tutors and literacy support providers, serve as school literacy coaches, and contribute to the larger debate on literacy policy as engaged scholars. The signature of the USF MATR/Reading Certificate Program is reflected in our intensive practicum experiences, most notably our community-based Summer Reading Program where candidates provide a 5-week summer reading camp to K-8 students.
