A minor in Reading Education requires the completion of 18 hours of specialized coursework. This program is designed for students already seeking initial licensure in another content area who wish to gain expertise in reading methods in the K-12 public school setting. Students interested in pursuing a Reading Education minor must be approved for admission to the minor by meeting statewide teacher education program admission requirements. Admission to the minor is administered through the Office of Teacher Education, Advising, and Licensure (TEALR) in the College of Education.
After admission into the minor, advising is offered through the Department of Reading and Elementary Education in collaboration with advising in the student’s major department. The minor is designated to be coordinated with Junior and Senior level coursework in the major. Successful completion of the minor will lead to a recommendation for a North Carolina add-on K-12 license in Reading.
