Features and Conditions

  1. Completion of the minor will be noted in the student's transcript as Minor in Reading.
  2. No other course substitutions are permitted without approval from the Reading Programs Coordinator.
  3. Some or all of the EDRD courses used for the minor may be part of a student's program of required or elective classes.
  4. Because each 600-level course is also in the MA degree program, doctoral students must complete doctoral-level assignments with satisfactory grades according to the syllabus for each course.
  5. In consultation with their doctoral program advisors, students must include sufficient Reading courses in their program of study to meet requirements for the minor. Because many of the courses are offered on a cohort model often through Extended Studies, doctoral Reading Minor students may need to seek permission from the instructor or program coordinator to enroll.
