3. Reading (316) and Literacy (17)
We can help you build reading teams in your school by forming your own site-based cohorts. The focus will be on improving student reading achievement in a way that can also lead to the 316 reading license for educators in Wisconsin. The program can also be aligned with a Master’s degree program. Additional information can be found at this link: smumn.edu/k12reading 

4. Ed.D. in Leadership- A DOCTORAL DEGREE WITH A PERSONAL FOCUS.
Our competitive pricing makes our doctorate one of the best values for an exceptional education. Graduates have gone on to serve as presidents, deans, and tenured faculty members at various colleges and universities, leaders of healthcare institutions, non-profit organizations, as well as educators and administrators in a variety of educational settings.

Choose from either the traditional format at our Twin Cities Campus or our blended option in which learners complete three eight-day summer residencies while the rest of the program is completed in an online learning community. Our next cohort begins in April, 2017 but you can apply now.
