Roberts adds online option for master’s degree in literary education

Roberts Wesleyan College will offer an online graduate degree in literary education starting with the fall semester.

The program is structured so working teachers will be able to add to their credentials while maintaining their jobs. They may attend full time or part time to amass the 30 hours of required coursework.

 “We understand the busy lifestyles of teachers, which is why we designed an online option in literacy education,” said Elizabeth Stevens, program director of the literacy program at Roberts Wesleyan College. “In our uniquely formatted program, teachers motivated to continue their education have the option to take classes fully online, or engage in a hybrid of online and face-to-face classes.”

According to the college, Roberts Wesleyan’s new degree option is one of the few in the area to allow students to complete the degree in as little as 11 months. A two-week practicum is also required. Information on the program is available on the college’s website.

Graduates will be eligible for jobs as teachers, reading specialists, reading coaches and other educational positions.
