Teachers pursuing their Master of Arts in Reading can expect a fulfilling graduate experience at Spring Arbor University. Our approach will show you how to integrate faith and learning into your professional teaching role.What’s unique about Spring Arbor University’s online program?
“Our School of Education is an academic and relational setting where faculty, staff and students can bring and apply all that we are – heart, spirit, mind and strength – to the study of teaching and learning. It’s where a challenging educational idea, theory or practice is quite comfortable next to a challenging biblical or moral perspective,” said Reuben A. Rubio II, Spring Arbor University Professor and Interim Dean of the School of Education.
The 12-course program is offered completely online, and there are many other advantages of the SAU online MA in Reading program. Affordable, accredited and Christ-honoring, the degree is designed to broaden your professional reach and make you more marketable in your district. It also allows you to immediately apply what you’re learning in your classroom. In addition, the program will enhance the leadership skills you need to develop collaboration among your peers, parents, district, and in the state and national sphere. It includes a real-world case study work that requires collecting and analyzing data and making recommendations based on your findings. Staff at Spring Arbor University Online have chosen to be at our institution because it frees them to bring their faith perspectives and experiences into their work. For you, that means you can expect a transformative graduate experience that will show you how to integrate faith and learning into your own professional goals. Fifty percent of our student body consists of adult learners, so we understand your needs and are here to support you. As a teacher, you’ll appreciate the fact that you are assigned an academic advisor when you are accepted who will recommend schedules, monitor your progress, answer program-related questions and direct you to appropriate support services. Just like on-campus courses, you have the ability to choose when you start and the specific program concentrations you want to complete.
