Is online learning right for you?

Take this self-assessment to help you determine if your learning style and technical skills are a good match, and whether your computer meets the minimum specifications for this online program.

Online Reading Endorsement

The Reading Endorsement program is 16 credits (four courses and two practica).

This is a highly interactive program requiring extensive communication and sharing of ideas with faculty and fellow students. These online graduate courses are asynchronous, with no required days/times when classes meet. Much of your work will be done independently, when and where it fits your schedule.

This program is designed for licensed teachers who wish to add the Reading endorsement to their current teaching license. Students enrolled in the License+Master's Program who are seeking their initial teaching license are not eligible to enroll in an online cohort.

Course Descriptions

Qualifications for the Reading Endorsement in Ohio

  • Teaching license in another area
  • Successful completion of a Reading Endorsement program
  • Passage of Praxis II for Reading
  • Ohio 12 hour reading core -- teachers must have completed the Ohio 12 hour reading core including a course in phonics, as mandated by Ohio licensure prior to applying for the reading endorsement. Some teachers enrolling in BW's program have not completed the Ohio 12 hour reading core at the time they first enroll at BW.  Baldwin Wallace will help teachers determine which undergraduate courses are needed if they do not currently have 12 hours of reading coursework.

Additional Courses Leading to the Master of Arts in Education

By adding an Advanced Practice Minor and the educational research class (EDU-511), candidates can complete a Master of Arts in Education degree online.
