Department Overview

The Department of Reading and Language Arts is committed to promoting and enhancing quality instruction in reading and language arts. Preparing literacy leaders for service in our communities is the overarching mission of the department and is consistent with and closely aligned to the theme of preparing leaders for service in our communities embraced by the School of Education and Professional Studies. The underlying principles of our mission are derived from our professional standards as defined by the International Reading Association and NCTE and by state mandates. Accordingly, the department offers a Master of Science degree program and a Sixth-Year Certificate in Reading and Language Arts. The Master of Science degree offers strands in Classroom Instruction in Reading and Language Arts, and Corrective and Remedial Reading and Language Arts. The master’s program also offers a strand in Reading-Mathematics. The strand in Corrective and Remedial Reading and Language Arts leads to a reading specialist certification by the State of Connecticut. The Sixth-Year Certificate program may include courses leading to a reading consultant certification by the State of Connecticut. An Advanced Official Certificate Program in Reading and Language Arts is also available or candidates who have completed a Master of Science degree in Reading and Language Arts. All programs require practicum, clinical, or field-based experiences under close supervision in order to provide candidates with opportunities to apply their skills. The Department of Reading and Language Arts collaborates with the Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership program in offering a specialty area in literacy leading to consultant certification. It is also home to the Central Connecticut Writing Project under the National Writing Project.
CCSU has contractual arrangements with institutions of higher education in Jamaica. Under the auspices of these agreements the Reading and Language Arts Department offers its master’s degree to Jamaican educators wishing to update their educational credentials. Fifteen credits of the program are offered on site in Jamaica; students accepted to the program must attend 12 credits on the CCSU campus to complete all requirements.
