Link Reading Science to Practice.

Enrolling Now, Classes Begin February 27, 2023

Bay Path University's Reading & Literacy Instruction program prepares students to use evidence-based practices in curriculum, instruction, and assessment for general and specialized education for grades Prek-12. Our program focuses on learning experiences that combine cognitive, neuroscientific, and educational research. These experiences help students build capacity to meet the diverse needs of learners across settings. We focus on the science of reading so students learn structured literacy skills and direct, explicit, systematic, cumulative, diagnostic, and multi-modal. Online instruction-led learning experiences include frequent collaboration, guided inquiry, and deliberate practice. The Reading and Literacy program offers a Master of Science in Education (MSEd) and an Education Specialist Degree (EdS), an advanced degree beyond a master’s.
