Certificates

Coursework at the ME, MEd, or PhD (with advisor approval) levels can qualify you to take the All-Level K-12 Reading Specialist Certification exam. Two certificates are available if you have completed a graduate degree at TWU.

Texas All-Level (K-12) Reading Specialist Certificate

If you want to take the Texas All-Level (K-12) Reading Specialist Certification exam upon completion of your M.Ed. program of study, you MUST complete the TWU EPP Graduate Professional Certification Application prior to beginning coursework.

Reading Specialist certification requires two years of teaching experience. Passing this exam allows you to apply for the Master Reading Teacher Certification without taking an additional TExES test.

For more information, visit the Graduate Catalog.
