Literacy Licensure

UVEI approved by the states of New Hampshire and Vermont to recommend Literacy Educator Program graduates for licensure in relevant endorsement areas listed here.

  • Reading & Writing Teacher (New Hampshire, 1 year or 2 year program)
  • Reading & Writing Specialist (New Hampshire, 2 year program)
  • Specialized Literacy Professional (Vermont, 2 year program)

Masters Degree Requirements: The Reading & Writing Specialist endorsement also requires a masters degree in literacy or a related field. UVEI’s MEd in Literacy Teaching or Literacy Leadership would qualify and can be pursued concurrently. The Specialized Literacy Professional endorsement in Vermont requires a masters degree (can be in any field).

Additional New Hampshire Requirements: Candidates for any of the New Hampshire licenses also need to pass the New Hampshire Foundations of Reading exam, and must have a minimum of two years of experience as a classroom teacher (three years experience is required for Reading & Writing Specialist).
