Portland-State-University 2017-2018 Bulletin



The ReadOregon program is a collaborative of two universities in Oregon—Portland State University, and Southern Oregon University.

The ReadOregon program consists of two collaborative distance education programs available to teachers statewide:

  • Reading Specialist Endorsement Program—graduate-level, distance-delivered 24-credit reading specialist endorsement program.
  • Literacy Education Course of Study—graduate-level, distance-delivered, 12-credit literacy education certificate of completion for general classroom teachers.

The goal of both programs is to improve the reading abilities of students in Oregon’s schools. ReadOregon modules and courses were designed to be used toward a reading specialist endorsement, a concentration in a master’s degree program, and/or a component of professional development in the area of literacy.
