Reading Program Receives National Recognition

The Master’s in Reading program at Bloomsburg University has been nationally recognized by the International Reading Association through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation’s Specialized Program Association.

The International Reading Association is a non-profit, global network committed to worldwide literacy. It reviews advanced programs that prepare students for careers in reading education, specifically reading specialists and literacy coaches. In order to receive national recognition, a program must meet high professional standards, as documented through a performance-based assessment system.

This is a landmark achievement for Bloomsburg University’s reading program, which has never before received this designation. A special thanks and congratulations to Dr. Virginia Bonomo and Dr. Cherie Roberts, who were instrumental in this process.

Additionally, three other Bloomsburg University programs – mid-level education, special education, and English – maintained their national recognition through the Specialized Program Association process.
