Interdisciplinary Studies B.S. with Core Subjects EC-6 Certification (Reading Concentration)

Reading is Key to a Child’s Academic Success

Reading unlocks a child’s imagination and opens doors to new worlds for them. Great teachers play a critical role in developing a child’s reading and writing skills, as well as cultivating a child’s lifelong love of books. Your Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Concentration in Reading from University of Houston-Clear Lake’s College of Education will help you become the expert reading instructor that students need. You’ll gain the skills you need for teaching effective reading and writing development; learning a variety of ways to teach reading; tailoring instruction to the individual student; and helping children strategically learn.

Help Transform a Child into a Lifelong Reader

Research shows that establishing early literacy skills enables students to experience high academic success. Your coursework, including corrective and remedial reading, diagnostic and prescriptive reading, reading in content subjects and reading and writing in EC-6, focuses on helping you teach children of all skill levels how to become proficient readers.
