Endorsement Programs

Post-baccalaureate or graduate programs


Literacy education endorsement

A literacy education endorsement for post-baccalaureate or graduate students is offered online through Continuing Education.  The courses offered meet Iowa's Reading K-8 Endorsement requirements. Practicing teachers learn how to assess students’ literacy strengths and needs. They then design and implement reading and writing instruction for students to help them become more skilled and successful literacy learners.

Teacher librarian endorsement

The online School Library Studies program offers graduate courses that meet the Iowa requirements for teacher librarian endorsement (formerly called media specialist endorsement).  A teacher librarian manages the school library program and serves as a leader in technology and literacy, a teacher of digital citizenship, and an advocate for lifelong readers. The courses can also lead to an MA degree.  Visit School Library Studies for more information.
